“Sikloon Elisa” weer in die moeilikheid oor posbus

Mnr. Dries Rossouw, die poskantoor in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) se takbestuurder, het die polisie laat kom en die skade aan die posbus gerapporteer. Van links na regs staan mnr. Rossouw en kapt. Mulaudzi.

Maandagoggend was die poskantoor se straatposbus in Erasmusstraat, voor Laerskool Louis Trichardt, nêrens te siene nie. Dit is later onder ´n hoop modder gevind in ‘n gat (pyl) . Daar is ook twee gate in die bussie gedruk, klaarblyklik met ´n trugrawer. Volgens ‘n ooggetuie was die bestuurder die waterafdeling se vroulike operateur.

Elke oggend maak die poskantoor getrou hul straatposbusse in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) leeg, maar Maandag (8ste) het daar ‘n verras­ sing gewag by die straatposbus in Erasmustraat voor Laerskool Louis Trichardt … die posbus het verdwyn. Mnr. Dries Rossouw, takbestuurder van die plaaslike poskantoor, is uitgeroep. Daar aangekom het hy gemerk dat die Makhado Munisipaliteit ‘n diep sloot op die sypaadjie voor die skool gegrawe het. Kort daarna is die raaisel van die vermiste posbus opgelos, toe dit in ‘n gat met grond bo-oor gevind is. Gelukkig was die elektriese span op die toneel ywerig om Rossouw te help om die posbus uit die gat te haal en later in die poskantoor se voertuig te laai. Dié span is sedert verlede week besig om ‘n nuwe elektriese kabel voor die skool te lê. Die posbus is nie al wat in die werkers se ywer in die slag gebly het nie. Vrydag (5de) het hulle dit ook reggekry om ‘n waterpyp raak te steek. Weens die kroniese watertekort in die dorp het die lek eers Sondag begin wys toe daar vir ‘n slag weer water in die pype was. Dit was juis die munisipaliteit se waterafdeling se enigste vroulike tru-grawer operateur wat, in die proses om die waterlek reg te maak, die posbus met sementbasis en al ontwortel het. Sy het dit ook reggekry om twee gate in die posbus te steek. Buiten hiervoor is telefoonkabels ook beskadig en het die skool Dinsdag bevestig dat hulle telefone nou buite werking is. Dié einste vroulike tru-grawer operateur, me. Elizabeth Ramagilela, was al telkens in die nuus oor skade wat sy aan infrastruktuur aangerig het terwyl sy agter die stuurwiel gesit het. Die afgelope paar jaar kon sy daarin slaag om talle waterpype stukkend te steek, oorhoofse kragkabels af te ruk en inwoners se opritte en sypaadjies te verwoes. Sy was ook die bestuurder van die tru-grawer wat ‘n jaar of wat gelede omgeslaan het in die park in

Eltivillas toe daar in ‘n onwettige aksie gepoog is om van vullis ontslae te raak deur dit in ‘n sloot te gooi en toe te stoot. Weens al hierdie eskapades het dié vrou by menige inwoners die bynaam Sikloon Elisa gekry. Rossouw het die polisie laat kom en die skade aan die posbus gerapporteer. Die Makhado Munisipaliteit het nie ‘n amptenaar van die waterafdeling uitgestuur om die skade te besigtig nie. “Die poskantoor het die saak van die beskadigde posbus in Erasmusstraat met die Stadsraad van Makhado bespreek en ons sal die saak só oplos dat dit die minste ongerief vir kliënte veroorsaak. Die poskantoor sal die posbus so gou moontlik vervang,” het mnr. Johan Kruger, kommunikasiebeampte van die poskantoor, Maandag gesê. Vrae aan die Makhado Munisipaliteit oor die aangeleentheid was teen druktyd nog onbeantwoord. Crime

Lim’s rape stats shocking says DA Following a recent national newspaper’s claim that at least 650 women and children have been raped in Limpopo since the beginning of the year, the Democratic Alliance (DA) said they would ask the provincial police commissioner to release the rape statistics. This announcement follows a recent document that was leaked in the City Press that more than 650 rapes have been reported across the province since the beginning of the year. This has led the DA to describe the current situation as a crisis and unacceptable.

Roof noop hom om sy onderneming te skuif Prestige Goldsmith in Makhado (Louis Tri­ chardt) is weer op die been en het verlede week weer sy deure oopgemaak vir besigheid. Prestige Goldsmith, wat aan mnr. Riaan Engelbrecht behoort, was in die middel van Maart een van drie ondernemings in die dorp wat beroof is deur ‘n bende booswigte. Die Zoutpansberger het berig oor die bende(s) wat ondernemings se alarmstelsels gedeaktiveer en dan hul brandkluise met hoekslypers oopgesny het om by die dag se kontant uit te kom. In Engelbrecht

se geval het die diewe ook sy juwelierswinkel se vertoonkaste vernietig en met feitlik al sy voorraad weggekom. Prestige Goldsmith was ten tye van die inbraak in ‘n perseel langs die Maranatha Sentrum geleë. Die inbraak by sy winkel het Engelbrecht genoop om sy besigheid nie net van vooraf op te bou nie, maar ook na ‘n nuwe perseel te skuif. Hy sal voortaan sy onderneming vanuit dieselfde perseel as Flintstone Signs, op die hoek van Munnik- en Ruhstraat, bedryf. Engelbrecht nooi

al sy ou kliënte uit om ‘n draai te kom maak by die nuwe perseel. Nuwe kliënte is ook welkom. Prestige Goldsmith is veral bekend vir hul juweelontwerpe. Kliënte kan hul eie ontwerpe na Engelbrecht bring of hom vra om ‘n unieke en enig-in-sy-soort juweelstuk volgens hulle spesifikasies te ontwerp. Prestige Goldsmith bied verder ook ‘n herstelwerkdiens aan, wat die skoonmaak van juwele insluit. Vir meer inligting, skakel Riaan by 015 516 1897 of 084 406 5536.

Dramatiese wending in saak ‘n Grusame muti-moord in die hartjie van Makhado (Louis Trichardt) het inwoners aan die gons, veral nadat ‘n egpaar van Eltivillas oor die naweek ook in hegtenis geneem is in verband met die saak. Dié opspraakwekkende moord het egter Woensdagmiddag ‘n dramatiese wending geneem toe die Staat hul saak teen die egpaar teruggetrek het, nadat dit aan die lig gekom het dat die man wat hulle van medepligtigheid aan die moord beskuldig het, gelieg het. Die gebeure volg op die ontdekking van ‘n vrou se erg verminkte en ontbinde liggaam Saterdag in die beboste veld tussen die Grasdak in Cellierstraat en die Soutpansberg Gholfklub. Dit nadat ‘n man, wat na sy hofverskyning Maandag as die 38-jarige Freddy Azwitamisi Tshikhudo geïdentifiseer is, die moordtoneel aan die polisie uitgewys het. Tshikhudo is in hegtenis geneem na

‘n voorval Vrydagmiddag (5de) by Elti Café in Eltivillas wat behoort aan die 62-jarige Musha Isap Ali Patel en sy vrou Hasina Muska Patel (60). Hy sou volgens ooggetuies by die kafee ingestap het en die vermoorde vrou se voorarm begin rondswaai het in ‘n skynbare woordewisseling met die egpaar. Sy aksies het egter gou aandag getrek en die polisie het hom kom arresteer. Volgens die polisie het Tshikhudo beweer dat hy het na die Patels se winkel gegaan om betaling van R70 000 en ‘n kar te eis vir die moord op die vrou. Die Patels sou hom glo gehuur het om die vrou dood te maak. Na aanleiding van sy bekentenis is die Patel egpaar ook gearresteer. Intussen het Tshikhudo die moordtoneel aan die polisie gaan uitwys. Die gru-fonds van die vrou se liggaam is gedurende die vroeë ure van Saterdagoggend gemaak. Sy is glo reeds ‘n week te vore, op 27 Maart, vermoor.

Haar voorarm en skaamlippe was afgesny en albei haar oë is uitgesteek vir mutidoeleindes, klaarblyklik terwyl sy nog gelewe het. Daar was geen aanduiding dat daar gepoog is om haar liggaam te versteek nie. Die vrou se oorskot, wat meer as ‘n kilo­ meter binne die digte bos gelos is, moes per helikopter uitgelig word. Polisielede het saam met patoloë en munisipale wer­ kers meer as ‘n uur lank gesukkel om ‘n pad deur die bos oop te kap om haar liggaam te bereik. Daar moes ook ‘n opening gemaak word, sodat die helikopter die liggaam kon ophys. Tshikhudo, asook die Patel-egpaar, het Maandag vlugtig in die Distrikshof hier verskyn op klagte van moord. Hul saak is uitgestel tot 15 April, wanneer die drie beskuldigdes toegelaat sou word om ‘n borgaansoek te bring. Intussen sou hulle in aanhouding bly. Dinsdag het die polisie klaarblyklik op nuwe bewyse afgekom en Tshikhudo het ‘n tweede verklaring afgelê. Ingevolge hierdie verklaring sou Tshikhudo erken het dat hy gelieg het oor die Patel-egpaar se betrokkenheid by die moord en dat hy inderdaad die Patel-egpaar na bewering beroof het. Selfoonlugtyd en kontant , wat glo geroof is, is in sy besit gevind. Hy het blykbaar ook erken het dat dit sy eie Zimbabwiese meisie was wat hy vermoor het. Haar identiteit is steeds onbekend. Na aanleiding van Tshikhudo se tweede verklaring het die Staat besluit om alle klagte teen die Patel-egpaar Woensdagmiddag terug te trek. Die egpaar het heel emosioneel uit die hofsaal gestap en die heeltyd net gesê: “Thank ‘n Patoloog van die polisie verwyder die voorarm van die vermoorde vrou wat you, thank you!” volgens die nuutste inligting gebruik is tydens ‘n roof by die Patel-egpaar van Intussen bly Tshikhudo in aanhouding Eltivillas se kafee. tot sy volgende hofverskyning.

Onwettige storting van vullis bly ‘n probleem

Eighteen years for rapist stepfather Rape of our women and children is out of control, not only in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) and the province, but nationwide. This statement was made by the State during the sentencing of a man who had raped his 12-year-old stepdaughter. The 46-year-old man from Waterval appeared in the Louis Trichardt Regional court on Monday where he pleaded guilty to a charge of rape. During his court appearance it came to light that the man, who was a security guard, was caught red-handed raping his stepdaughter. The man had locked the girl’s mother in her room before he went to the girl’s

room. When the mother woke up and found her door locked and her husband gone, she unlocked the door with a spare key and started looking for her husband. When she could not find him, she went to check on her sleeping daughter. Upon opening her daughter’s door, she found her husband raping her daughter. During a medical examination, semen was collected from the girl, which was positively linked to the farther. The incident took place in June of last year and the man was arrested in September after he had fled from his home. According to the man’s plea explanation, he was drunk when

he raped the girl. He also said that he was suffering from a kidney disease and had only completed Grade 10. During his court appearance, the court conceded that liquor might have played a role but shot down claims about his poor health and education. “You didn’t plead guilty out of remorse, but rather because you were caught red-handed,” said regional magistrate Pat Cloete during the man’s sentencing. The man was sentenced to 18 years’ direct imprisonment. He was also declared unfit to carry a firearm and his name had to be recorded in the national sex offenders register.

Flagship development now a white elephant Musina’s dysfunctional multi-million-rand monument to incompetence and greed ... This is an expert’s description of the Musina Spirulina Plant - once hailed as an impressive first for Africa. The installation was developed and erected with a government sponsorship of R6 million, for what was hailed as the world’s best commercially produced spirulina. The product, described as superior and unique in various respects, experienced several high-profile professional marketing launches before disappearing from the market. It left a sprawling, elaborate plant with expensive, sophisticated equipment idle and in complete dereliction. The equipment once included a specially imported turbo-rotor drier of more than R1 million which also ground the material into a fine powder, for increased and faster absorption of this health-food supplement made from algae. Enquiries about the present status of the project were initially met with total silence by the Musina Municipality. In the year 2000, the Musina Municipality was among the beneficiaries of government funding for the creation of local economic projects. The municipality received a donation of R6 million and decided on the production of spirulina. The spirulina project was wholly owned by the municipality, through an entity called Zelpy 1903 (Pty) Ltd., controlled by a board of directors, with the then municipal manager, Mr Abram Luruli, as CEO. Luruli said at the time that the idea was to generate income and channel the profits back to the municipality to facilitate other economic development projects to benefit the community at large.

During one of several launches of the product, which started with a launch in Sandton in 2007, the then premier of Limpopo described the project as a public-private partnership which could become a good role model for the entire country to emulate. In the absence of any response from the municipality to questions about the present status of the project, the international expert who assisted the municipality in the design and development of the production plant during a period of several years, Prof Johan Grobbelaar of the University of the Free State, was approached. He confirmed that he was informed in 2007 by the municipal manager that his expertise and services were no longer required. This happened after Grobbelaar had also completed the training of an assistant at the plant. The trained assistant afterwards left for alternative employment elsewhere. “I later received reports of increasing neglect and deterioration at the plant. It seems as if the end result is that a multi-million-rand investment which was unique in Africa and had all the potential of an inspiring success story for South Africa, had become yet another statistic of bad management and avarice,” Grobbelaar said. Last week, in a belated response to repeated enquiries, municipal spokesperson Mr Wilson Dzebu confirmed that the Musina Municipality had decided to discontinue the project because it was not sustainable. “It did not bring in anything for the municipality, so it was decided not to continue with the project. At present, the future usage of the site and the equipment is under deliberation,” Dzebu said.

Nie doodgeskok nie, maar geskok in die regsisteem

´n Luitenant van die Makhado SAPD het Maandagmiddag spitsverkeer opgehou by die Songozwi- en Kroghstraatkruising toe hy ‘n ongeluk veroorsaak het. Die speurder, wat besig was om met sy diensvoertuig in ‘n noordelike rigting vanuit Kroghstraat in Songonzwistraat te ry, het met ‘n ander voertuig in die kruising gebots. Niemand is ernstig in die ongeluk beseer nie. Afgeneem is die luitenant (derde van regs) saam met ander lede van die polisie se forensiese- en speureenheid op die toneel. Misdaadvoorkoming

Maak seker wonings is duidelik gemerk Gebrekkige straat- en huisnommers is steeds ‘n probleem in Makhado (Louis Trichardt). Volgens mnr. Dirk Meissenhei­ mer, voorsitter van die Soutpansberg Dorpswag, is bogenoemde een van die groot probleme wat telkens uitgelig word tydens hul gereelde sektor misdaadforum vergadering met die polisie. “Die polisie, dorpswag en

sekuriteitsmaatskappye kan nie vinnig optree en op ‘n toneel opdaag as daar eers na huisnommers gesoek moet word nie. Dit lei tot groot frustrasie en kosbare tyd gaan verlore,” sê Meissenhei­ mer. In dieselfde asem versoek hy inwoners om hul regte huisnommers te gee wanneer ‘n saak by die polisie aangemeld word en presies te verduidelik wat die

probleem is. Eweneens ‘n groot probleem is ondernemings wat nie duidelik nood- of na-uurse nommers vertoon nie. “Sulke nommers kan help as die polisie op ‘n toneel opdaag en ‘n perseel moet betree. Die regte persoon kan dan dadelik geskakel word om vir hulle te kom oop­ sluit,” sê Meissenheimer.

Misdaadvoorkoming

Hierdie inligting kan die polisie help Doen die moeite om ‘n huis- of tuinhulp se besonderhede deeglik te dokumenteer. Dit is die raad van mnr. Dirk Meissenheimer, voorsitter van die Soutpansberg Dorpswag, aan alle inwoners. “Dit klink miskien vir u belaglik, maar dit is waardevolle inligting wat die polisie in

‘n ondersoek kan help indien daar iets by jou huis gebeur,” sê Meissenheimer. As veiligheidswenk waarsku Meissenheimer om onder geen omstandighede verbode immigrante in diens te neem nie, maar eerder deur die regte kanale te werk, soos die Departement van

Binnelandse Sake en die SAPD. “Neem ‘n foto van jou werker en maak ‘n afskrif van haar of sy ID-boek of paspoort. Verkry ook, waar moontlik, ‘n woonadres en telefoonnommer, asook die adresse en telefoonnommers van sy familie en vriende,” raai Meissenheimer inwoners aan.

Werda Toyota

Sewe jaar na die ongeluk wat byna sy lewe gekos het, sê die 73-jarige mnr. Hannes du Toit van Musina hy is heel ontnugter deur die regsisteem. Op 16 April 2006 het Du Toit, ‘n elektrisiën, ter nouernood aan die dood ontkom toe hy aan ‘n lewendige kragdraad gewerk het. Hy is gekontrakteer deur die Musina Munisipaliteit, wie se amptenare hom die versekering gegee het dat die kragdraad ‘dood’ was. Na ‘n uitgerekte regsgeding meen Du Toit hy moes noodgedwonge ‘n skikkingsaanbod aanvaar. “Dit lyk egter vir my of die geveg eintlik begin ná die skikking,” sê Du Toit. Die geveg vir sy lewe het hy genadiglik gewen. ‘n Stroom van 11 000 volt het ‘n gat so groot soos ‘n tennisbal uit Du Toit se linkerbeen geruk en ook ander ernstige brandwonde veroorsaak. Met die val van amper 10 meter het hy ‘n ernstige kopwond, nek en rugbeserings en ‘n beenbreuk aan sy regterbobeen opgedoen. Operasies en mediese behandelings, besoeke aan regslui en deskundiges in die voorwêreld het gevolg en stadig maar seker was al Du Toit se spaar- en pensioengeld uitgeput. ‘n Oorwinning in die regsgeveg was die uitspraak van die Noord-Gauteng Hooggeregshof in Februarie 2010 wat bevind het dat die munisipaliteit 100% nalatig was. Die munisipaliteit moes die regskostes van die eerste hofsaak dra, maar dit het ‘n besoek van die balju gekos voordat hulle betaal het. Die volgende verhoor sou die bedrag (quantum) van die eis bepaal. “’n Week of wat voor die quantum verhoor het die teenkant se versekeraar hulle advokaat verruil vir ‘n meer senior advokaat, adv. Booth. Die nuwe advokaat kon vir uitstel vra, omdat hy nie vertroud met die saak was nie. Hy kon my ook weer van voor af na al die dokters en deskundiges stuur en dit kon die saak vir nog twee jaar uitrek. Ek kon net nie meer aangaan nie, want dit is elke keer brandstof en verblyfuitgawes. Ek het die skikkingsaanbod aanvaar,” sê Du Toit. Du Toit het sy berekenings gemaak en tot die slotsom gekom dat dit wat hy uitgekry het, gelykstaande is aan die bedrag wat hy aan onkostes spandeer het. “Ek het dus my onkostes in ‘n lompsom teruggekry. Ek is dankbaar daarvoor, want ek kon dit belê en ons kon aangaan met ons lewe,” sê Du Toit. Die saak is op 7 Oktober 2011 geskik. Na die skikking moes die kostes getakseer word en die daaropvolgende geveg en hoë regskostes het Du Toit ontnugter. “Die regsisteem laat ‘n mens sekere dinge glo

Sewe jaar na sy ongeluk, sê mnr. Hannes du Toit, ‘n elektrisiën van Musina wat ‘eintlik dood moes gewees het’, dat hy ietwat ontnugter is deur die regsisteem.

wat dan anders uitdraai. Jy dink jy gaan ryk uitstap, maar jy breek net gelyk,” sê Du Toit. Du Toit se prokureur, mnr. Leon Maré, het hierdie week aan die Zoutpansberger gesê dat ‘n eis gewoonlik hoog is en die skikkingsbedrag minder as die eis. “Ek dink nie die bedrag is ooit heeltemal voldoende nie, “ het Maré gesê. Hy het bygevoeg dat van die deskundiges geld geëis het waarop hulle nie geregtig was nie. “Die takseer­meester besluit hoeveel die deskundiges gaan kry en het van hulle bedrae afgetakseer. Die een geskil is opgelos, maar die ander een nog nie,” het Maré gesê. Du Toit is egter dankbaar dat hy ‘n oggendpos as faktotum by ‘n laerskool bekom het. “Ons kyk nie terug nie. Ek sê dankie dat ek gespaar is en dat ons deur die saak gedra is deur ‘n Hoër Hand. Ek het ook besluit dat ek nie die verdere operasies wat die neuroloog aanbeveel het, gaan laat doen nie,” sê Du Toit.

Bus driver jailed for trying to smuggle people into SA A 39-year-old Zimbabwean crossborder bus conductor was sentenced to eight months in jail for attempting to smuggle 10 undocumented people into South Africa through the Beit Bridge border post. George Chindani was convicted on his own plea of guilty to contravening a section of the Immigration Act (assisting border jumpers) by a local magistrate, Ms Gloria Takundwa. He was sentenced to eight months in jail, of which four months were conditionally suspended for five years. The remaining four months were further suspended on condition that he pay a fine of US$250. The prosecutor, Mr Jabulani Mberesi, said that on 26 March, at around 23:00, Chindani arrived at Beit Bridge Border Post in a cross-border bus belonging to his employer, Hawk Bus Company. The bus was carrying 10 undocumented passengers, five adults and five minors, aged between seven months and 13 years. The bus was stopped at the exit gate by police officers. As part of the border formalities, the passen-

gers were asked to produce their travel documents and they failed to do so. They indicated that Chindani had offered to assist them illegally across the border. Chindani was then arrested. Meanwhile, two Beit Bridge men were each fined US$200 or one month in jail for trying to assist two border jumpers to cross into South Africa through Beit Bridge Border Post. Peace Ishmael Dziva (29) and Sithandazile Mpunzi (29) were convicted on their own pleas of guilty to charges of assisting border jumpers by Magistrate Takundwa. Mr Mberesi said that on 30 February, Dziva and Mpunzi connived and went to Beit Bridge Border Post where they met Tsepo Moyo and his son, Tapelo. The two did not have passports and they approached Dziva and Mpunzi, who offered to assist them to cross into South Africa illegally for a R100 fee. They were given the money before proceeding with the two undocumented travellers to the exit gate where they were intercepted by a police officer manning the gate, leading to their arrest.

New councillor elected

Reddingswerkers moes Dinsdagmiddag inderhaas vir mnr. Stefan van den Heever (in die voertuig) uit sy voertuig help, nadat hy daarin vasgepen is ná ‘n ongeluk. Die ongeluk het in Rissikstraat oorkant die Volle Evangelie Kerk in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) plaasgevind. Volgens inligting het sy voertuig se remme nie lekker gewerk nie, wat verhoed het dat hy betyds kon stop vir ´n bakkie wat voor hom gewag het om te draai. Hy is op die ongelukstoneel gestabiliseer en na die hospitaal geneem vir verdere mediese behandeling.

A well-known preacher and motivational speaker in the Musina municipal area, Pastor Grace Mavhungu (42), was sworn in as the new African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) councillor for Musina Municipality. Mavhungu replaces Councillor Jenitta Banda, who died last month. The down-to-earth pastor took the oath before Senior Magistrate Willem Guldenhuis during the recent council meeting which took place at the municipal council chamber, which was filled to capacity. Widely known as Pastor Grace, Mavhungu says Christians have a role to play in maintaining the democracy of this country. “Christians should not only dominate in churches, they should also be part of the government structures since they are part of the democracy of this country. If God does have authority over the ones who are elected, then we should also play our part to make sure that people’s political wishes are maintained.” Apart from involvement in politics, Mavhungu says, the most important thing that all Christians should do is to pray. “We should also strive to use God’s word to set the standards of living and then be willing to share the truth with everyone around us. We need to gently instruct those around us in the truth of God’s word and how it can enhance and improve our lives. We should vote with our faith as a guide on important issues.” She says churches should provide a place for dialogue between individuals. “It should be a place where those who have Jesus as Lord in common can converse about touchy topics and walk away knowing that, whatever happens, God is the one who is really in power. Whether you like it or not, to be a citizen, with the freedoms we have, means responsibility to those freedoms. If we disagree

with something, we need to vote to make our voices heard.” Mavhungu says she will definitely contribute to the development of improved service delivery in Musina. “The fact that I served as ward committee member and my involvement with different developmental organizations is an advantage to me as I know the communities that I’m going to serve. I will join hands with other councillors to fulfil our mandate of bringing a better life to all the people of Musina.”

Pastor Grace Mavhungu is the new ACDP Councillor for Musina Municipality.

Hierdie groep redenaars het aan Laerskool Louis Trichardt se interne kompetisie deelgeneem en dring deur na die ATKV-kompetisie wat op 24 April by Laerskool Pietersburg-Oos gehou sal word.

“A huge number of children returned repeatedly, bringing new friends, and it was good to see how many of them showed such a keen interest,” says Mr Kos Coronaios of the SAC. Guests arriving for the evening’s stargazing were greeted with views of Jupiter on a big screen, followed by the Great Orion Nebula and the famous Trapezium. “Many questions were asked with particular regard to the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), which shows a growing awareness among the general public,” Coronaios added.

Help for small building contractors

This is the sight that will meet the team which is to arrive in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) later this month for filming part of the “Breaker” Morant documentary at the historic Fort Hendrina. The monument, which is officially in the care of the Makhado Municipal Council, is a severely neglected steel structure, at present pasted all over with unauthorized posters advertising illegal abortions. A bronze plaque at the locked entrance door mysteriously disappeared some time ago and was replaced by courtesy of the local branch of the Voortrekker youth movement.

The National Small Contractor Network and store in Giyani or call Happy Moloto at 079 026 building material retailer Cashbuild have joined 5604. forces to assist small contractors in Giyani by facilitating an informative trade workshop on 18 April. “Many builders, electricians, plumbers and painters don’t have access to vital trade information, such as where to find finance, how to raise a loan, tendering and more. These workshops aim to help small builders address these challenges,” says Mr Thembelani Tukwayo, project director. He has lined up many interesting speakers for the workshop. “SARS will be on hand to share useful information with Stanger-based contractors on tax-related issues. There will also be representatives from the NHBRC and the CIDB to explain their workings to contractors. We are fortunate to have Cashbuild on board, making this ambitious project possible,” said Tukwayo. Cashbuild has teamed up with its many suppliers to present technical advice to workshop delegates. Cashbuild CEO Werner de Jager says that this is an exciting project that is aimed at uplifting the general standard of the building industry. “It is our intention to make a positive contribution to the many small contractors in Stanger and this is one of many interventions that we will be rolling out going forward,” says de Jager. De Jager says that in the competitive environment currently prevailing in the building industry, it is important for the small contractors to have all the information that will help them deliver their Unarine Nengwekhulu, a Grade 11 learner projects on time and at a high-quality standard, of Louis Trichardt High School, obtained ensuring that they secure more building projects 96% at the quarterfinals of the National in the future.

12 April 2013 13

Deur Linda van der Westhuizen

Vhembe “weet nie” daar is nie water nie “O, ons het nie geweet dat daar nog ‘n waterprobleem in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) is nie!” Hierdie gewraakte woorde van die Vhembe Distriksmunisipaliteit (VDM) die afgelope week sal sekerlik menige inwoner verstom laat, veral diegene wat nie nek of lyf in ‘n bad water kan laat week nie. Die plaaslike voorsitter van Afriforum, Wally Schultz, het Dinsdag gesê dat hierdie woorde vanaf die VDM se kommunikasiekantoor hom rasend gemaak het. Dit is nou amper vier maande na 15 Desember, die eerste amptelike datum waarop water uit die dorp se droë krane moes gevloei het. Dié datum is uitgespel deur die hofbevel van die Noord-Gauteng Hooggeregshof in Pretoria wat AfriForum teen die munisipaliteite verkry het. Daarna is uitstel gegee en uiteindelik is ‘n saak van minagting van die hof teen die munisipale bestuurder van die VDM aanhangig gemaak. Dié saak sal na verwagting einde Mei voorkom, nog ‘n maand en ‘n half ver. Hoe lyk me. Anne-Marie Kuhne se waterkalender sedert 1 Maart? Kuhne is die eerste applikant genoem in die hofbevel en AfriForum die tweede. Volgens Kuhne se waterkalender was Devenishstraat naby die middedorp in Maart ‘n volle agt dae sonder een druppel water. Ander dae was daar net by tye water. “Op 4 April was daar geen water nie, en op Vrydag 5 April, die dag waarop Vhembe gesê het dat hulle die water gaan afsit, was daar wel water die gewone tye. Die Saterdag was daar nie ‘n druppel water nie en vanaf Sondag tot Dinsdag water vanaf 06:00 tot 15:00. Op 18 Maart vanjaar was dit vyf jaar gelede dat ons laas water in die aande gehad het,” het Kuhne hierdie week gesê. Vir inwoners van die nuwe uitbreiding was die laaste dekade

‘n droë een. Die Mowcop reservoir is volgens die VDM 22% vol. “Die chlorineerders by die vier nuwe boorgate is geïnstalleer en dié boorgate pomp reeds water in die sisteem in. Van die 14 boorgate wes van die dorp is daar sewe wat in ‘n werkende toestand is. Ons het pas die toerusting aangekoop om die ander te herstel, maar ek het nie die bedrag byderhand nie,” het mnr. Moses Shibambu van die VDM se skakelafdeling op 9 April aan die Zoutpansberger gesê. Shibambu het ook gesê dat hy vir mnr. Phillip Olivier (sekretaris van AfriForum en bestuurder van die plaaslike belastingbetalersvereniging) gevra het om die dele te identifiseer waar daar nog probleme met watervoorsiening is. “Ons weet dat daar probleme met die hoogliggende dele is, maar ons wil weet van al die areas. Ons wil seker maak dat daar watervoorsiening op ‘n daaglikse basis is,” het Shibambu gesê. Hy kon nie sê wanneer die daaglikse watervoorsiening aan alle dele van die dorp herstel sal wees nie. Intussen het Olivier gevra dat inwoners wat sukkel met watervoorsiening hul adresse op die onderskeie organisasies, soos AfriForum en die Soutpansberg Belastingbetalersvereniging, se webwerwe aanbring. Schultz beklemtoon dat spesifieke adresse en tye wanneer daar nie water is nie, verskaf moet word. Dit sal ook baie help as verskeie inwoners van verskillende dele van die dorp noukeurige waterkalenders byhou, soos die van Kuhne. Schultz het verder voorgestel dat die VDM ‘n kantoor in die dorp moet open, sodat hulle eerstehandse inligting en ondervinding van die watersituasie kan hê.

The Makhado Municipality’s mayor, Cllr David Mutavhatsindi (center, back), recently donated school uniforms to 18 pupils at Johannes Mulambilu Secondary School. He said that the time of going to school with tattered uniforms was now in the past. This came after the Makhado municipal library had identified needy pupils at the school through their outreach programmes. Photo supplied

More traffic, less congestion at border Immigration authorities at Beit Bridge Border Post did not encounter serious congestion problems during the Easter holiday, despite handling an increase in the number of travellers compared to last year during the same period. According to Zimbabwean immigration statistics, 85 518 travellers passed through Beit Bridge Border Post during the Easter holiday, which is an increase compared to 78 939 during the same period last year. The local assistant regional immigration manager in charge of the border post, Mr Charles Gwede, said the border was less congested compared to the previous years. “This is largely because the two holidays were close together and those who travelled during the December holiday might possibly have decided not to travel in anticipation of congestion and spending several hours in the queues,” he said. The highest number of trav-

ellers was recorded on Easter Monday, when 20 089 people passed through the entry port. The smallest number of travellers who passed through Beit Bridge was on Easter Saturday, which saw 14 365 people using the border post. Zimbabweans constituted the highest number of travellers who passed through the border during the holiday period. The volume of traffic also went down during the holidays, following the closure of the commercial section of the South African Revenue Service (SARS), which mainly handles heavy-duty vehicles. The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority officials (ZIMRA) said they handled an average of 1 000 cars daily during the Easter holiday. Gwede said immigration officials managed the situations efficiently, following the deployment of 16 relief officers from other stations. “We had put the necessary

mechanisms in place to deal with an anticipated congestion during the holiday period,” he said. Zimbabwean and South Africa immigration officials at Beit Bridge Border Post held an inter-border meeting with other local key stakeholders during the run-up to the Easter holiday. The meeting was aimed at exploring various strategies to ensure quick clearance of travellers during the holiday period. Clearance of travellers on the South African side had also improved during the holiday, following a visit by Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor prior to the Easter weekend to check on the performance of the border systems. More officers were also deployed at the border and a preclearance facility had also been created at the Musina show grounds as part of a decongestion strategy.

The co-ordinator of Musina Ministry of Compassion’s shelter, Gilbert Rukamba, in front of the shelter tents. By Frans van der Merwe

Musina shelter asks for urgent food supplies The shelter of Musina Ministry of Compassion (MMC), where hundreds of dislocated people from neighbouring states find temporary shelter when entering South Africa at Beit Bridge, is suffering a severe shortage of food to assist the people who shelter there at present. The shelter, located in Nancefield in Musina, consists of several large tents served by a kitchen and ablution facilities in permanent structures. The tents and the permanent buildings were donated by several international organizations with a presence in Musina.

The co-ordinator at the shelter, Mr Gilbert Rukamba, says the shelter serves a daily average of 150 people. They are mostly from Zimbabwe, but also from Somalia and Malawi. Rukamba says the shelter is totally dependant on donations. Anybody who can assist with maize meal and/or ingredients for sheba can contact him at 082 043 7004. The tents which must provide shelter are not very effective against cold and rainy weather. The well-organized feeding scheme for destitute people at the AFM El-Shaddai’s Hands of Mercy centre near the central business district in Musina is situated several kilometres to the east of the MMC shelter in Nancefield. Shelter is also provided at the Roman Catholic Church in Nancefield.

Inwoners het sekerlik die afgelope week al die munisipale werkers opgemerk wat besig is om die padtekens by kruisings op te knap. Samuel Ndloghuvu is Woensdagoggend by die Erasmus- en Kroghstraatkruising in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) afgeneem waar hy besig was om die STOP-teken weer duidelik wit te verf. Of motoriste egter aan die nuwe verkeersmerke by stoptekens gaan gehoor gee, is egter onseker. Die afgelope paar weke was daar talle botsing by kruisings in die dorp vanweë mense wat steeds stoptekens verontagsaam.

tory: The battle in the courts to determine who should be the real king or queen of the Vhavenda is gaining momentum, and amended papers were filed on 8 April in the Thohoyandou High Court. The parties ask the court to intervene and have the decision to make Toni Ramabulana the king of the Vhavenda declared invalid.:

C

omment: Dimbanyika was recognised as Chief in 1996. At 21, Masindi was born in 1991, meaning that her father was not Chief at the time of her birth. Besides that, her father was never King of VhaVenda ... on what grounds does she want to be recognised as Queen? What she and her fellow brothers don’t understand is that there was never a King of VhaVenda ...

so ’n kompleks sluit. Dit gaan baie meer sin maak om die Groenstrook as ’n natuur-eenheid te ontwikkel, te onderhou en netjies te hou vir die inwoners om in te ontspan. Makhado Crossing is ’n wit olifant wat op die inwo­ners afgedwing is. As ’n tweede ontwikkeling, soos beoog, afge­dwing word gaan nog ’n sakegebied geskep word wat gaan veroorsaak dat die huide sentrale sakegebied daaronder gaan ly en selfs kan dood­loop. Louis Trichardt en omgewing het nie die koopkrag om so ’n sakegebied en kantoorkompleks aan die lewe te hou nie. Die volgende gedeelte uit die be­ rig is totale wensdenkery: “According to the department, the proposed development will have a positive impact on the local economy, crime will be less and contributions to be paid to the municipality will eventually result in beter service delivery.” Dit is die grootste twak wat nog uit ‘n duim gesuig is.

I like gifts.

I

am sure everyone enjoys receiving gifts. The Bible has something to say about gifts and our Scripture reading for today tells us that all who trust in Jesus Christ as their Saviour are the gift of the Father to His Son. This means that if we are Christians we are very special to Jesus and His Father. Before the world existed, God wrote the names of His children in the lamb’s book of life. The heavenly Father then gave those people to His Son. Verse 37 tells us: “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.” God gave us the most wonderful gift of all, He gave His Son to be our Saviour. We read those lovely words in John 3:16. Jesus became man and died upon a cross, bearing our sin. He received the punishment due to us for our sins. And because of His life and death He saved His people and sent the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit who shows us our need of a Saviour, and gives us the gift of faith to believe in Jesus as our redeemer. The Holy Spirit makes us hate sin and seek forgiveness from God. If you are saved you are very special to God. He chose you to be saved. You are special to Jesus, because He came and changed your heart. Gifts are special. If you trust in Jesus you are special to God. May God bless you. - 079 5168303

Late notification causes upset for top athletes (Contd from P18) Kofi and Khuliso’s times were slower at the SA championships - over 15 seconds. They both made it to the semifinals, where Kofi was fourth in his heat and Khuliso was sixth. Rendani Ndouvhada, U/17 athlete of the school, said that it was his fourth time that he had gone to the SA championships. He felt hurt by the fact that, at the Vhembe district meeting on 16 February, he was not treated fairly and his appeal was unsuccessful. “At Vhembe they

cheated me, when they swopped my name with another athlete’s in the 400mH,” Rendani said. He wasn’t allowed to participate in that event at provincial level in order to compete in the nationals. Fortunately, Rendani competed at provincial level in the 110mH and came third, with a time of 13.69s. This time qualified him for competing at national level, where his time was more than a second slower. All three athletes, however, lauded the excellent organisation at national level and de-

scribed their experience there as “great” and “very good”. Questions had been put to LIMSA (Limpopo Schools Athletics) concerning the poor organisation and late notification of athletes for the SA competition. The questions on the previous fiasco were posed to the LIMSA secretary on 7 March and comprehensive answers were finally received almost three weeks later, on 25 March (See accompanying article).

By Linda van der Westhuizen

LIMSA received “a lot of concerns” The Limpopo Schools Athletics (LIMSA) secretary said that they had received “a lot of concerns from Vhembe in particular”, following the omission of key athletes of the Vhembe district for the provincial schools athletics meeting in Polokwane at the beginning of March. Some athletes had been omitted from the list after wrong positioning at the Vhembe district athletics meeting held in Musina on 16 February, and some as a result of maladministration. Athletes of the secondary, as well as primary school in Makhado (Louis Trichardt), were affected. Subsequently, these athletes were not permitted to participate in their best items at the LIMSA meeting at the Peter Mokaba stadion and had their dreams shattered of competing at the South African Schools Athletics (SASA) championships. “Unfortunately, we could not do anything as qualification for the nationals was based on the qualifying standards as set out by SASA. We selected the team based on the qualifying standards,” said Mr Peter Maluleke, secretary of LIMSA per email on 25 March. Why were the athletes’ names omitted? Maluleke said that LIMSA had received team lists from all the districts on 20 February for the placing of athletes according to events. “We [LIMSA] do not take responsibility for any omissions by any district; however, we are able to include athletes in the lane drawings if we are alerted timeously before the championships,” Maluleke said and added that human errors occur all the time. “If an athlete has been omitted on the finals list after qualifying, it is the duty of the team managers to raise their concern speedily and such omissions could easily be rectified.” The athletes,

however, found it nearly impossible to have the mistakes reversed. Maluleke did say that a workshop would be held with the Vhembe district and that they would subsequently recommend all districts to buy and use the JOBA program, which is used by both LIMSA and SASA and is highly reliable, “so that we do not encounter such mistakes in the future.” Schools definitely have the right to see the district lists before the provincial event, so that they can inform LIMSA of any dissatisfaction. The correct procedure at district level, as explained by Maluleke, is that the district organisers form a local organising committee (LOC) around the end of January or early February and plan the sequence of meetings. The organiser invites knowledgeable people to assist and they develop the event programme and issue it to schools. They invite qualified and experienced officials to officiate at events. The results are captured and distributed to the three levels - clusters, circuits and schools - for confirmation. The district team list is compiled (with the first three athletes in all events per age group) and distributed to all levels. “Once everyone is satisfied with the team, the district chairperson signs the team list and then submits it to the Limpopo secretariat for lane drawings and placement,” Maluleke said. The Limpopo organisers will then send the reprinted list to the district for confirmation and if there are no indications of omissions, then it is certified to be correct. The Vhembe athletics chairperson is Mr Milton Munyangane (082 740 6294 or 076 222 7356), and Mr J Nthenzi (076 653 6272) is the secretary.

Late notification causes upset for high school’s top athletes Following the schools athletics fiasco where the Vhembe district omitted athletes from their provincial list, athletes suffered once more when they were notified at the last minute that they had to board the bus to the national athletics championships in East London. Three athletes from Louis Trichardt High School in the Vhembe district were selected for the Limpopo team to participate in the national championships. The problem was that they were unaware of this fact until the last minute. According to the athletes, the athletics representatives

notified the school on Friday, 15 March, that they had been selected, but they were notified of the arrangements only on the Monday morning. Ms Elsa Kriek, deputy principal at the school, confirmed that the children had been told on Monday morning that they had to board the bus for East London at 12:00. “The organisation was really not good. We went home and packed and boarded the bus at 12:00,” said Kofi Apea Adu, U/19 athlete and headboy of the school. “I was a bit disappointed, because I was not mentally ready for the competition since

I did not think that I had made the team. But I went and did my best,” Kofi said. “Kofi, Khuliso and Rendani did not do that badly, considering that they had not trained at all after the provincials at the beginning of March,” Kriek said. Kofi was third in the 110m hurdles for boys under 19 at the Limpopo championships. His time there was 14.1s. Another U/19 boys 110m hurdles athlete, Khuliso Muthsembele, came fourth at the provincials in a time of 14.3s. The first four athletes broke the record. (Contd on P 17)
