which becomes a security risk,” he said According to him, the family members must bring food, new clothes, water and a fan to make their grandmother more comfortable. He further said the knowledge that people were being paid lots of money every month out of the people’s taxes to do their job and residents must still beg for basic services at public hospitals such as Tshilidzini was very bad. He called on those in higher government offices to intervene and see to it that services that people deserved were rendered. A reliable and very close source at the hospital confirmed the hospital is in a crisis, with many departments dysfunctional. The person also confirmed the critical shortage of water that is affecting the whole hospital. “The water here is on and off and this is affecting patients adversely. We are not a water authority and have to wait for service from this municipality, which is bankrupt,” said the source.

Man fumes over neglect By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho A 48-year-old ambulant patient, who should have been operated on around late February, feels that his life is being compromised after the Tshilidzini Hospital turned him away at least four times. Mr Lukas Dzivhani, who resides at Mvelaphanda section of Dzwerani village, is a builder and roofing constructor by profession. On 3 February, he was on top of a house when a timber pole gave way. He fell and broke his leg. “My leg was totally broken, so that I could

The family later arranged for a bakkie to ferry Dzivhani to hospital. “We had to use a bakkie since he couldn’t fit properly inside a [sedan] car, because his broken leg needed to lie stretched out,” said Khunwana. - Continues on page 2

Water-starved Tshififi residents invade Vhembe District offices Angry community members from Tshififi outside Thohoyandou caused drama at the Vhembe District Municipality (VDM) offices when they blocked entrances to the main administrative offices, demanding that they be supplied with water. This was during a protest march to the offices by Tshififi residents, who said they had been denied their basic human right to clean water by the municipality for a long time. The residents, who were also chanting slogans, handed over a memorandum of their griev-

ances to Cllr Rapson Rambuwani, who promised to take the memo to the higher authorities. The water problem has reached alarming proportions in the district, with many communities going without water for a long time. Not long ago, communities at Duthuni and Nzhelele took to the streets, barricading roads for water. Tshififi Sanco leader Mr Lufuno Benedict Gomboza said the community had endured a dry spell from February 2018 to the present. “We have had enough of this municipality. Water is life and without it there is no life at all. We have tried all in our power and engaged the municipality in this

regard but all in vain.” He added that they relied on dirty river water, “where we compete with animals and vicious crocodiles”. VDM spokesperson Mr Matodzi Ralushai confirmed they were aware of the water problem at Tshififi. He said that they were currently busy reviving boreholes in most rural Cllr Rapson Rambuwani of the Vhembe district responds after receiving the memorandum villages that had been affected from Tshififi Sanco chairperson Mr Lufuno Gomboza (right). by the water shortages. “I cannot give a time frame as of now as to when the boreholes would be functional, but we are still awaiting a technical report to that effect,” he said.

Former Muvhango star’s fraud case postponed to May for judgement

The municipality has been given seven days to respond.

The message is clear: all they want is water and nothing else.

By Elmon Tshikhudo Curious members of the community filled the Sibasa Regional Court to capacity on Monday. This was during the much-awaited judgement in the fraud case involving former Muvhango star Joe Ragwala (45), his former lover Doris Mthembi (48) and Nelly Lekgetho (67), a former employee of Limpopo businessman Goddard Mugwena. The case was postponed once again. The trio was arrested in 2009 after Mugwena had allegedly discovered the fraud. The trial started in 2015 and has been postponed many times before and was set for judgement on 8 and 9 April. During a brief appearance, their case, consisting more than 100 counts of fraud, was postponed to early next month for judgement. The presiding magistrate in the case, Mr Jakkie Wessels, was not available to conclude the case.

R1,3 m is said to have been defrauded from Mugwena’s business, Injectmed Paramedic College, over a period of four years. The modus operandi was that students who were supposed to pay their fees into the bank account were made to pay cash at the college, which was allegedly taken by the suspects. Drama ensued outside the court when Ragwala noticed that Mr Vincent Phakula, who has testified as a state witness against him in another case in Giyani, had also attended the court proceedings. Ragwala started hurling insults and screaming at Phakula, alleging that he was the one who had killed his mother, together with Mr Mugwena at Namakgale outside Phalaborwa in 2009. Mugwena was also threatened with death during the altercation outside the court. Speaking after the postponement outside the court, Mugwena said that he understood that the postponement

as the law must be applied on fact. “I am not worried about the postponement. The proceeding of the trial took five years to be concluded as it started in 2015. The case is very big and involved a number of exhibits. It won’t be easy to conclude a written judgment within a week,” said Mugwena. Joe Ragwala and Doris Mthembi will join Mr James Ragwala (Joe’s father), Ms Joyce Ragwala (Joe’s sister) and Ms Tintswalo Mhlari (Doris’s sister) next week in the Giyani Regional Court on charges of conspiracy to murder Mugwena.

I have to be at Rivoni,” she said. “We are living in heart-breaking conditions.” While the sleeping conditions in the girls’ dormitories could be described as a “little better” when compared to the boys’, the taps on the sink are always dripping and overflowing into the dormitories from the indoors bathrooms. “The taps are old and messed up, so we are always ready to mop the water off the floor,” said Rudzani. “We know there’s no money to fix these taps here, but the government should see to it that they arrange for the fixing of the taps and sewerage system because this is just another waste.” The pupils between the ages 5 and 12 sleep in pairs on a single bed because beds and bedding are lacking. The mobile classrooms that were delivered in March 2016 amid the pupils’ strike are all now leaking when it rains. The wooden flooring is shaky and riddled with big holes in some places. The mobile toilets are not hygienic either. “There’s a shortage of braille-writer machines, and the braille-printing machines that were donated some years ago are always conked out and fixing them is costly,” said a pupil. The boys’ dormitories

Chief Madonsi finally gets installed By Elmon Tshikhudo After many years of not having a formal leader, the community of Madonsi Malamulele in the Collins Chabane municipality finally had a chief installed in the village on Friday. Hosi Evans Hlungwani Madonsi was installed as chief, taking over the leadership after the passing of his late father. The installation took place at the Mdanisi Primary School, preceded by protests during the week, with a rival family group blockading the gates of the local traditional offices. Elderly people with placards also protested at the gate a few days before the installation. Representing the royal family, Mr Samson Hlungwani, uncle of the new chief, told the history of the chieftainship and showed why Evans Wisani Hlungwani was the rightful heir to the position. Messages of support also came from the Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa and the Vatsonga Machangana Royal Unity Forum. Representing Contralesa, Hosi Aaron Mahumani urged

the new leader to work with all stakeholders for the development of the community. Hosi Lwandlamuni Nwamitwa, on behalf of the Vatsonga Machangana Forum, urged the community to support their leader, saying only one person could occupy the position. Coghsta MEC Jerry Ndou said the programmes of the government could not materi-

alise without the cooperation of traditional leaders. “Be a chief who will develop your community and the country of South Africa with your knowledge,” said Ndou. Hosi Madonsi told his subjects that he would work together with all the structures in the community and the department for development in their area.

As of June last year, the Makhado Municipality had a total number of 700 employees and 134 vacant positions. The wage bill for both employees and councillors amounted toR282,58 million in the 2017/18 financial year. These are some of the figures from the summarised annual performance report of the municipality’s 2017/18 financial year. During the year, the municipality implemented a total of 10 capital projects, most of which had been the construction of roads. Only four projects were completed, namely Gombita Phase 1, Valdezia Phase 1, Tshirolwe Phase 1 and Tshikwarani Phase 1. The municipality had spent 100% of its Municipal Infrastructure Grants (MIG) with the initial approved budget of R91 170 000. This budget was later adjusted to R106 160 000 and eventually brought the actual expenditure to a total of R106 169 000. The report states that the municipality is currently busy with 10 capital projects that are at various stages of completion in the 2018/19 financial year. “It is anticipated that the majority of these projects, when completed, will improve access to many villages,” reads the report. The report further states that,

DA files a complaint against VDM at SAHRC Local Government The Democratic Alliance (DA) officially filed a complaint with the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) on Tuesday to probe the failure of the Vhembe District Municipality (VDM) to provide consistent clean water to all residents for the past five years. “This is a clear violation of Section 27 of the Constitution,” said Mr Jacques Smalle (DA Limpopo premier candidate) in a press release. According to Smalle, residents in the rural villages of municipalities such as Makhado, Musina and Thulamela have been struggling to get water and no turnaround strategies have been implemented to supply water as an interim relief to the residents. He highlighted

the fact that many areas, including Louis Trichardt, Tshikota, Elim and surrounds, were left without water for the past two weeks. “The communal water taps dotted around many villages in these municipalities within Vhembe are no longer in use as they remain waterless. Some families fetch water from streams nearby where cattle and goats also drink, whilst others resort to buying water from their neighbours who have boreholes,” said Smalle. He added that the crisis also affected local businesses in all the CBDs and malls in Louis Trichardt, Elim, Musina and Thulamela. “The water crisis happens despite the launch of a R513 million water project between Valdezia and Mouwkop reservoir [in Louis Trichardt] in 2017. The water project was intended to supply

water to Makhado, the Makhado Air Force Base and 33 villages within the Sinthumule and Kutama areas, but the project has been abandoned and left incomplete by a contractor,” said Smalle. Smalle reiterated that the VDM, as the water-services authority to all these municipalities, has incurred over R1.2 billion of unauthorised, irregular and fruitless and wasteful expenditure that cannot be accounted for. Smalle said the DA believed that the wasted money should have been utilised to build more reservoirs, boreholes and establish more water projects to address this crisis within the district. He said the DA urged the SAHRC to commence with their investigation and ensure that officials were held accountable for violating the rights of Vhembe residents.

Itsani community join police to fight criminals By Elmon Tshikhudo

The ever-increasing crime at Tshisahulu Matieni outside Thohoyandou has prompted the community to enter into a partnership with the police in order to fight the scourge together. On Saturday, many community members gathered at the Dzindi Primary School and launched the first-ever street committees in the area. The area has been declared one of the crime hotspots in Limpopo in the recent crime statis-

tics. The convener of the event, Mr Michael Gumula, said they had too much crime in the area and that they could not just sit as if all was well. “We have a mammoth task of seeing to it that our area is safe, where all of us could live in peace and harmony. We know that crime happens in our midst, where people are robbed of their valuables and attacked and even raped. We cannot turn a blind eye and pretend all is well, and this is the reason why we thought of a partnership with the police.” He added that the street committees would be the watchdogs from the ground and would be working in conjunction with the police. “We hope that this will, at the end of the day, yield good fruits and our community live in peace again,” said Gumula. He further indicated that the committees will do patrols and do crime detection, which will help

stop it even before it happens. “We have capable men and women who are ready to go out there and defend this community, and we urge the whole community to give support to this project,” Gumula said. Sector commander Captain Makondelele Tshishonga hailed the community for having come up with the idea. “Crime has become societal problem and the police alone cannot beat this scourge that is tearing communities apart. The time is now that we as police and you the community join hands and fight together to end this monster. This area is overwhelmed by crimes such as robberies, theft and rapes, among the crimes. If we start from street level, criminals will not have anywhere to hide. They will be exposed and arrested, and together we can make this area of ours crime-free,” said Tshishonga.

Local comedian Mr Majo Almost-Famous bagged the Africa gospel comedian of the year award at the Africa Gospel Awards Festival (AGAFEST) held at the Action Chapel Dome in Accra, Ghana, a fortnight ago. He came up against famous comedians such as Multi B (South Africa), Kenny Blaq (Nigeria), Akpororo (Nigeria), Angel Gabriel (South Africa), Lepacious Bose (Nigeria), and Tebogo Ntlahane (South Africa). After the event, he said that he was delighted and could not put into words or describe how he felt. “I thank God for winning this award. Without Him, I’m nothing.” He thanked his fans for voting for him. “ I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the love and support my fans gave me,” he said. When asked why he was so passionate about being a comedian, he said that people went through a lot in their lives and it gave him much pleasure and fulfilment when he got to make them laugh and forget about all their troubles. “That is what makes it all special. Making people laugh their pain away. Comedy is medicine for the soul, which heals a lot of illnesses that society is facing.” He draws inspiration from the likes of Martin Lawrence, Eddie Murphy, Red Fox and Richard Pryor and his goal is to have his own comedy talk show on one of the national broadcasting channels. He was born Mukovhe Magwedze and hails from Makwarela. According to the CEO of Big Events Ghana, Mr Prince McKay, the purpose of the awards is to recognize and celebrate talent and hardworking gospel acts, ministry, mission projects, outreach and evangelism, charity works and many more works related to spreading the gospel across Africa. “The awards also seek to unearth, encourage, motivate and inspire musicians and Christian activities, missions, and evangelism outfits to aspire to attaining excellence in their ministries and businesses, and to be of better Mr Majo Alservice to the most -Famous.

Prince Chauke is arguably currently the biggest and hottest Xitsonga musician in Limpopo. Known as Henny C – Tsonga Prince in music circles, this musician, originally from Phambo village in Malamulele, scooped up four awards during the 15th annual Mungana Lonene FM Xitsonga Music Awards (XMA15). The awards ceremony, which saw nominees battling it out in 13 competing categories, was recently held at the Giyani Stadium. The soulful Henny C took home best disco, best RnB, best Doctor Thomas Chauke Artist of the year and the highly contested Best Xitsonga Male award. Nominated in five categories, the only award he did not win was Most Popular Song of the Year, which went to Joe Shirimani. “Winning those awards was like a dream come true. It is something that I worked hard for with the hope that one day I will win,” he said. These awards, however, are not the only accolades he has achieved in his 16-year-long music career. Last year he won the best RnB award during the Limpopo Music awards (LIMA), in which he was nominated in four categories. He was also nominated in the best vernacular

Hip Hop category in SATMA 13. “When I made my first RnB song, I knew that my songs would be played on MLFM one day and I would win awards,” he said. Narrating his journey to Limpopo Mirror, Prince C said he only managed to find his breakthrough in the industry in 2016 after he was given an opportunity to record his first Afro RnB album. The 10-track-album, inspired by his personal life, was released in October that year. His first single from this debut album, Lovola money, earned him two nominations at the South African Upcoming Music Awards (Sauma) in 2017. The studio producer, studio engineer, photographer, videographer and music-video producer recalled that the journey to success was not easy. “It wasn’t easy - it’s been ups and downs; trying to find the right people to work with, the funds and the studio was a huge stumbling block,” he said. Prince C, who is a husband and the father of two boys, credited his achievements to his manager, Tumi Shirinda, his wife Jenine Chauke and his family for supporting him. “Facing everyday life as a musician who doesn’t have a full-time job is not easy. But that’s what makes everything worthy when one day you break through. With

By Silas Nduvheni A new age hip hop artist from Shayandima, Rofhiwa Nemakonde has just released a new CD, Hopes and Dreams. He is better known on stage as Madboyworldwide. Nemakonde (27), who is both singer and composer, said that his music is a mix of kwaito, trap music and RNB. He said that his music is a little different from the wellknown Venda rap music. His hopes and dreams is to inspire the future generation, hence the title of the CD. It is his second album. The first one, Madfam, was released in 2016. The new CD consists of eight tracks, with Monalisa, 3am in the city, Candy

Magidimisa and Cyril Ramaphosa among the songs. Nemakonde added that, with the track Cyril Ramaphosa, he was embracing the fact that Ramaphosa is the first Venda president, saying none have ever dreamt that the country will be ruled by a Venda person, who was born and bred in dusty village of Khalavha. He further said that, with the track Candy Magidimisa, who is one of the actors of the Muvhango Tshivenda soapie, he acknowledges his role model. She is also his every day support system. Hopes and Dreams was recorded at Swagod studios in Shayandima town. For booking and live performances, Nemakonde can be contacted @ 082 735 5630.

God on our side, anything can change anytime,” he said. Even though it was a struggle in the beginning, Prince C continued believing in his talent. He has recorded three albums since 2016 and has indicated that they continue to do wonders for him. He is also planning to release another album this year, since he is known for releasing albums annually. “I am so excited to do some few songs as well and release another album, which will be available soon,” he said.

Art & Entertainment Youths being creative as key players in a recording studio By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho A gentleman with a heart of gold recently set up a recording studio to help launch the talents of many young and old artists. “I want to help as many youths as possible here in the Makhado area, so that they realise their music talents,” said Sewata Ramaleba, the studio’s executive director. “We already have more than 10 youths attached to our recording studio and the talent is amazing.” Waya Waya studios were set up late last year at Madombidzha Zone 2, in the Sinthumule area. While Ramaleba has expertise in the operations of a recording studio, he had chosen to offer young men and women a chance to hold key production positions in the studio, so that the studio would really belong to the people and not just to the founder. “I don’t underestimate the talent these youths have, because I know and I have seen that they are capable of making good music from beats and lyrics to project packaging,” he said. “The youths, if they are monitored well and are given constructive guidance, will amaze you. Just given them a space to be themselves artistically, and they will be creative.” Waya Waya Entertainment is not just an average recording studio, but an institution of learning, practice and excellence. Its head producer is the 20-year-old Phillip “Crosswave” Masengane, who joined the studio early this year. “I learned beat-making from the comfort of my bedroom on my laptop,” he said. “Today I am happy that the first-hand basic knowledge

in beat-making has just landed me a post of a producer at Waya Waya. I feel at home when I am in the studio, surrounded by the artists whom I am working with.” Ashley “Esh Graphics” Ramaru (20) is the chief graphic designer in the studio, and he also sings in the hip hop and RnB genres. The expertise of Esh Graphics means that the recording studio hardly seeks the services of a graphic designer from external service providers. “I learned graphic design way back, in fact at the age of six, when my mom taught me drawing,” he said. “Today I

am a computer wizard.” Kagiso “Kay Gee Splodge” Maphakela (22) is an accomplished singer whose talent needs neither verbal nor written introduction. “Words are cheap – just have some time to listen to any of my songs and you’ll have something positive to say,” he said. The kind of music being made at Waya Waya is streaked with innovation, experimentation and uniqueness – the characteristics that all make the music fresh to listen to and enjoy. Sewata Ramaleba can be reached on 078 269 0796.

Liberty Radio Awards this weekend Phalaphala FM presenters and programmes are expected to come back with awards during the Liberty Radio Awards event, which will be held on the weekend. The programmes are: Dziaorowa, Zwamitambo, Nne Navhone, as well as the promotion of the Durban July and the Image of the station. The presenters are: Thikho Liphadzi and co-host Shandu Vele Lukhwareni of Dziaorowa, Thilivhali “Big T” Muavha of Zwamitambo, Rendani “RendyS” Sikhwivhilu for the promotion of the Durban July and Mutenda Nethengwe for the Image of the station. Liphadzi’s career in radio started when he joined the then Radio Univen as a part-time presenter in 2002. He went on to become a force to be reckoned with behind the microphone, hosting a variety of programmes. He joined Phalaphala FM in 2005 and is affectionately called Thikho Skhokho by his supporters. “I fell in love with radio at a very young age and believe I have made the right career choice. I used to mime radio programmes on my own at home and could not resist the opportunity to join Phalaphala FM, because I have wanted to expose my talent to the public for a long time.” The afternoon drive show (Dziaorowa) is nothing less than an after-school party. While practising different dance moves to the beat of all the genres of fast-paced music, one is entertained and informed by cool hosts Thikho Liphadzi, Shandu Vele Lukhwareni and Lucky “Slim” Tshilimandila with the sports bulletin. All the regular news, traffic and economic updates are there, but Dziaorowa is mainly aimed at educating the youth with features such as “youth talk” that focus on lifestyle issues that the younger generation grapples with and everything regarding HIV/Aids. Sikhwivhilu, the producer of Vhandilani (Morning Drive Show) on Phalaphala FM, started his career as a radio presenter and became programme manager at Univen Radio in 1997. He later took up the challenge of hosting the afternoon drive for Phalaphala FM. “It makes me feel proud to break the stories that suddenly become the talk of the town

and bring changes in many areas of our society,” he said. “I could not resist the opportunity to join Phalaphala FM, because I had wanted to expose my talent to the public for a long time. I am not afraid to face new challenges in life.” Sikhwivhilu joined SABC Education in 1999. He has vast experience in project management from his voluntary work in both Tanzania and Morocco and is also a senior education producer with Phalaphala FM-SABC Education. Thilivhali “Big T” Muavha, a sports presenter (Zwamitambo) went from schooling at Mufanzhoni High in Mashau to a teachers’ diploma at the then Tshisimani College, a BA at Unisa and a diploma in sports management from Univen. He also received a diploma in project management from the North West University as well as an honours degree in strategic management and cooperate governance from Unisa. “Sports have always been part of my life. I started as a sports presenter at Univen Radio in 1999 and worked with them until 2006.” During this time, he also enjoyed a stint as a teacher and with the Departments of Public Works and Transport, before joining Phalaphala FM in 2006. His show, Sports hour, caters for all the sporting codes, with the aim to develop, educate and entertain the listeners. Soccer, rugby, cricket and boxing receive a lot of coverage, due to the interest from the listeners, and it gives Muavha an opportunity to interact with big shots in sporting circles globally. “What I like about the show is that it is friendly, and we interact with the listeners.” Mutenda Nethengwe is doing the promotion of the station’s image. He went to the Sound of Sounds College to study sound engineering and ended up with a diploma in sound engineering and production. His duties as specialist producer include, among others, making jingles, recording voices and putting together sound effects. “I enjoy my work.” According to him, life comes with a lot of responsibilities “and you need to make sound choices. I think the best thing to start with is going to school to get some form of education that will serve as a good platform for your future.”

entrepreneurs who will bring development in our communities. Our target groups are boys and girls of the age 4 to 25,” said Mbodi. Mbodi further said fear of starting something new kept the idea on hold until 2017 when she faced her fears and pulled out all the stops and hosted the first successful event. The winners are used as ambassadors for charity in their communities where, through the Amphulusaho Mushadu Foundation, they target the disabled, orphaned and the less advantaged and take care of them.

They also have time to visit schools where learners are encouraged to take their studies seriously and they talk about issues of beauty. “My wish is that out of the models we are producing, one will go out and represent us nationally and even internationally. We hope that, before long, we will find them big agencies that will pay them lots of money as models.” The beauties have already visited places such as Takalani Children’s Home where they donated food parcels, clothing, toiletries and entertained the children.

A visit to a beauty pageant for youngsters at Makhado in 2015 became a turning point for a young woman, Miss Pfano Witty Mbodi. The 25-year-old from Mandala outside Thohoyandou and a science student at the University of Venda was so fascinated and inspired by the event that she went back home and started the Mr and Miss Tshikhafoma beauty pageant. The project started in 2015 and aims to unleash the potential and talents of youths who might not have exposure because they are holed up in remote rural villages. According to Mbodi, a lot of talent can be found in remote areas and most of this talent goes to waste as the youth do not have a platform to showcase what they are capable of. “For me, the visit to that show at Makhado became an eye opener and I came to realise that I could do something for our youth who just roam the streets with nothing to do but with lots of talent. Besides the beauty of the child, we are also looking at the academic side where we motivate the youth to take their education seriously.” She added that many of the youth lacked self-esteem and they wanted to make them realise their self-worth. “Our other aim is to help our Happy children at Takalani Children’s Home who were fed and given clothing by the community brew up young youths.

Promotional playoff hopes for Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila By Frank Mavhungu Following their 3-1 victory over Ubuntu Cape Town in their NFD League match at the Thohoyandou Stadium last Saturday, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) enhanced their chances to partake in the promotional playoffs at the end of the season. TTM jumped from the seventh to the fifth spot on the log, following the victory. With

only four matches remaining before the activities for the current season come to an end, the Tshakhuma side are now eight points behind the pace setters, Stellenbosch FC. A gap of four points exists between TTM and the second-placed Ajax Cape Town, and they are three points behind the thirdplaced team, Royal Eagles. TTM are tied with Mbombela United on 41 points. The league champions will gain automatic promotion to the Absa Premiership Division while the second- and third-placed sides, together with the Absa Premiership team that will finish in the 15th spot, will compete in the promotional playoffs. The best team in the promotional playoffs will also gain promotion to the elite league. Witbank Spurs, who parted ways with the team’s head coach, Mr Ephraim Mashaba, two weeks ago, are languishing at the bottom of the log with 21 points. The other relegation candidates are Real Kings and Ubuntu Cape Town. Phumelele “Ace” Bhengu of TTM was a marvel to watch in their game against Ubuntu. He scored a hat trick. It brings the number of goals Bhengu scored in TTM’s last two matches to 5. He scored a brace when his team beat Witbank Spurs 2-0 two weeks ago. A substitute, Cameron Chweu, scored the only goal for Ubuntu in the dying minutes of the game.

count. A breakdown in communication between the keeper of Stars, Elikana Nemakanga, and his defenders gave rise to the goal. Naledzani Mukondeleli intercepted a ball directed back to the keeper and beat the keeper with a half volley. Stars did not lose their fighting spirit, despite conceding this early goal. Their midfielders continued to distribute some telling passes from the middle of the park in their search for the equaliser. Arsenal scored the second goal via Talifhani Mbelengwana to make the half-time score 2-0 in favour of Arsenal. Stars come back strongly in the second half and scored through Vhulenda Netshiavha and Lufuno Ndou. “I saw my players looking so heavy and playing without a purpose. In the first half we tried to control the game. If you can control the game, you create opportunities. They, however, used their opportunities and equalised in the last minutes of the game,” said Arsenal’s coach, Mr Owert Mammburu. Stars’ coach, Mr Maanda Themeli, said that they should have won the match if his players had used their chances. “We know each other very well and they are in good form and they play very good football.” He said that credit must go to his players as they came back from 0-2 to equalise.

By Mbulaheni Ridovhona In an effort to unearth local talent and to give youngsters an opportunity to develop a passion for rugby, Tony Marageni recently started a rugby club at his home village at Madombidzha. Marageni said that the Madombidzha Rugby Club was started to give children in the rural areas the same opportunity to play and learn rugby as those in the towns. “We also want to build a rugby culture in Madombidzha and get kids off the streets by getting them involved in as many sports as possible,” Marageni added. “With the transformation talks in rugby circles, it is also essential to have such initiatives in the rural areas, where most of the black people live.” When asked if a proper facility existed for the rugby club, he said that they were planning to have a multi-purpose complex built in Madombidzha that would give the community the opportunity

to live a more active lifestyle. “With a sustainable rugby club in Madombidzha, businesses will have something to invest in the community, which in turn can improve the economy of the village. The kids who play rugby will also have the opportunity to make a career out of it or even receiving rugby bursaries from top institutions in the country,” he added. He said that they also wanted to introduce rugby in the local schools within the Madombidzha area, which would improve their school facilities and get them more potential sponsors. The rugby club welcomes everyone willing to play rugby. “The players we have range from six- to 20-year-olds, but everyone is welcome to join us. We won’t turn you away,” he said. Marageni explained that he fell in love with rugby at the tender age of six. “I’m passionate about rugby, because it has given me a lot of opportunities and taught me a lot of life skills. I have travelled around the

country and created so many brotherhoods through the game of rugby. I love rugby because it teaches one discipline and gives you an opportunity to express yourself, and the fact that it’s a fun sport to play is a huge bonus,” he added. If you want to join or support Madombidzha Rugby Club, you can phone Marageni on 0658295655 or write to

must-see performance, burning rubber in his signature smoking style on the KZN south coast at the South Coast Bike Fest for a second consecutive year. “Last year, I rode the Yamaha MT10, and this year spectators will get to watch me on the incredible Yamaha R1,” said King Donut, explaining that this is the bike ridden by Yamaha Moto GP racer Maverick Vinales. “I enjoy participating in the annual South Coast Bike Fest™ because it’s such a great place to watch upcoming talent. It’s a festival I look forward to every year.” South Africa’s biggest motorcycle and music festival - presented by Ugu South Coast Tourism - is expected to offer some crazy stunts on high-powered machines, performed by the best thrill-seeking riders from 26 to 28 April. “The tyres that I will be using this year are rare to find in South Africa. While they are spinning, they produce red and blue flames,” he said. Matamela credits his success to his three teachers from Tshiheni Primary School and Khakhu Secondary school who helped to instil discipline in him. “Growing up wasn’t easy, but perseverance brings happiness,” he said.

Tron to face Mighty in ABC league After beating Magezi FC 2-3 at the Ha-Manamela grounds last Saturday, it remains to be seen whether Tshakhuma RO Na Ndilani (TRON) will continue to enhance their chances to escape the relegation axe when they meet Mighty FC in their ABC Motsepe League match at the Tshisaulu Mmbengeni Kone Sports Field tomorrow afternoon. With only four matches remaining before the league programme comes to an end, TRON must win at least three of their remaining matches to be on the safe side when it comes to relegation. The Tshakhuma side are currently in the second-last position on the log with 23 points. TRON are two points behind Polokwane City Academy and three behind Great North FC. Should they manage to beat Mighty FC tomorrow and Polokwane City Academy and Great North FC lose their matches, TRON will jump from the 15th to the 13th position on the log standings. Mighty must keep a watchful eye on TRON’s stars, Khuliso Phosiwa, Oscar Mtshauba, Rinae Madzhuta and Dakalo Nemakonde, or else they will not know what had hit them when the referee blows the final whistle. The other Vhembe-based side, Mikhado FC, will pay a visit to Magezi FC at the TT Cholo Stadium outside Polokwane. A win for Mikhado will be enough to keep the Nzhelele Valley side’s title hopes alive. Mikhado are in the fourth position with 53 points, five behind the pace

setters, Madridtas FC. Madridtas will host Ndengeza FC at the Oscar Mphatha Stadium in Turfloop. The Polokwane derby between Great North FC and Polokwane City Academy will be staged at the Seshego Stadium. The other ABC Motsepe League weekend fixtures are: Ditlou FC vs The Dolphins FC, Boyne Tigers vs Barracah Valley FC, Giyani Hotspurs vs Ollesdal FC and Pusela City vs Polokwane United.

By Frank Mavhungu After testing their strength against Orlando Pirates at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday evening, Black Leopards are gearing up for another tough Absa Premiership League match tomorrow afternoon. They will host Kaizer Chiefs at the Thohoyandou Stadium. The fact that Leopards are not on the safe side when it comes to relegation is reason for Lidoda Duvha not to spare any effort in their preparations for the all-important fixture. The Thohoyandou side are in the 12th position on the log, while the Amakhosi are in the seventh spot. Leopards will have only themselves to blame if they fail to collect the maximum points against Chiefs tomorrow. According to Mr Elijah Mulaudzi, Leopards’ general manager, all their players, including Isaac Masia and Khuliso Mudau, will be available for selection tomorrow. Masia and Mudau watched the team’s game against Polokwane City at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium from the grandstand. They were still serving their suspensions. Chiefs’ defenders will have it tough against the Leopards’ strikers, Mwape Musonda, Lifa Hlongwane and Joseph Mhlongo. On the other hand, the Chiefs’ forwards, Bernard Parker and Khama Billiat, will have to double their efforts if they are serious about breaking the Leopards’ defence wall, which is marshaled by Marks Munyai, Pentjie Zulu and the skipper, Jean Munganga. Mulaudzi appealed to the fans to buy their admission tickets in time, saying no tickets

Warning lights for Leopards By Frank Mavhungu Black Leopards’ 1-3 loss to Polokwane City in their Absa

Premiership League match at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium seems to have far-reaching implications regarding the future

of the club as an affiliate of the country’s elite division. Although Lidoda Duvha did not move an inch on the log after the defeat, teams below them won their matches last weekend, piling huge pressure onto Leopards. Maritzburg United, who are fighting for survival at the bottom of the log, did the unexpected when they crushed Bloemfontein Celtics 2-1 last Friday. The other relegation candidates, Chippa United and Baroka FC, both won 1-0 over Amazulu and Kaizer Chiefs respectively. Following last weekend’s results, Maritzburg United have 20 points while Free State Stars, Baroka FC and Chippa United have each deposited 24 points into their league accounts while Leopards have 25 (the result for Wednesday’s match between Leopards vs Orlando Pirates not included). A quick glance at Leopards’ remaining fixtures reveals that the local lads have Mount Kili-

manjaro to climb. They will host Kaizer Chiefs at the Thohoyandou Stadium tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon. They still must play Mamelodi Sundowns at home and away. Lidoda Duvha’s other remaining fixtures are Bidvest Wits (away), Maritzburg United (home), Amazulu (away) and Cape Town City (home). Leopards must win at least three of their remaining fixtures to be safe when it comes to relegation. Leopards were the first to draw blood in their game against Polokwane City last Sunday. Mwape Musonda, the league’s top goal scorer, headed home in the 27th minute. The home side found the equalizer through Puleng Tlolane on the stroke of half time. Leopards lost shape in the middle of park for the better part of the last half. City took the lead via Mpho Mvelase, while the third one came via Mohammed Anas later in the game. City’s captain, Jabulani Maluleke, was the Man of the Match.
