Taxi owner shot in cold blood By Elmon Tshikhudo

In what is believed to be part of the ongoing taxi related violence in the country, a 65-year-old taxi owner was gunned down in cold blood just as he entered his home at Thohoyandou Block F on Wednesday morning. The well-known taxi owner, Mr William Nethononda, a member of the Johannesburg Long Distance Taxi Association, met his untimely death after allegedly being followed and ambushed by unknown hitmen at his home. The incident that shocked the community of Block F and taxi operators in the area happened on Wednesday at around 8:00. Several spent shells were found next to the vehicle. It is believed that five bullets hit him in the body from close range.Residents staying nearby said they heard a speeding car followed by gunshots. Within a short space of time the area was swarming with curious onlookers who wanted to see what had happen. Soon police cordoned off the area and different teams arrived to take charge of the scene. At the gate near where the

vehicle in which he was shot stood, were grief-stricken relatives, some of whom were crying uncontrollably. Even the devastated wife of the deceased, Ms Joyce Nethononda, came to the scene when the body was being carried away in a government mortuary van. Speaking on condition of anonymity, a neighbour said they heard a speeding car which was followed by gunshots. “It was so sudden. I was not far from here and when I went out to investigate I saw a white Yaris with Gauteng registration numbers also parked next to the house. I saw one man who went back to the Yaris and sped off. That is when we realised our neighbour was stone dead at the steering wheel of his car. It was so terrifying, and it will take time for me to forget this incident,” she said. The deceased’s daughter, Fortune Tshilande, said the family had received threats for some time now from people that were known to her father. “At one time they killed the dog here and the family felt insecure and had to hire a security guard who worked in the evening,” she said.

She further indicated that her father left for the taxi rank in the morning and it looked as if the assailant was following him all the way back to his home. She added that it was only after he had parked the car at the gate that the attacker shot him several times. He died on the scene. “Our father was a loving person who took care of all of us. We have lost a good teacher who always came up with solutions when we had problems.” She further indicated that the family will not be safe when the attackers are still at large. She urged the law enforcement agencies to speed up their investigations and to apprehend the perpetrators. At the time of going to press on Wednesday, we were still waiting for comments from the Limpopo police spokesperson, Col Moatshe Ngoepe. Anyone with information which can assist the police in arresting the suspects involved in this matter, may contact Captain Richard Boshomane at 079 894 5501 or the crime stop number 0860 010 111 or the crime line SMS 32211 or the nearest police station.

Well-known Phalaphala FM presenter, Ms Mbavhalelo Nematondoni, appeared briefly in the Thohoyandou magistrate’s court on Tuesday on charges of malicious damage to property. It is alleged that she broke computers and a printer at the Kazmat Pharmacy in Khubvi on Sunday. The case was remanded to 30 August 2018 and she was released on bail of R1 000. It is believed that the spat arose from an argument between Ms Nematondoni and the husband of the owner of the pharmacy. More detail will probably come to light when the case is heard in court.

By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Shelter projects for two indigent families recently got off the ground, with one house nearing completion and the other already above knee level. This comes after the councillor for Makhado Municipality’s Ward 38, Ms Jerminah Rashamuse, had been so deeply disturbed after noticing the heart-breaking living conditions of two families, that she decided to canvas for funds to secure building material to provide shelter for them. The beneficiaries are Mr Pfano Ramuntshi of Makungwi village, and Ms Rendani Matula from Raliphaswa village. They are both unemployed. “Mutula’s house is almost complete,” Rashamuse said. “We are now focused on (obtaining) corrugated iron sheets and timber poles for roofing. There is also a need for more bags of cement. As for Ramuntshi’s house, it’s nearing the window stage and we are short of bricks.” Even though Rashamuse submitted the families’ names to the housing list in the

relevant department so that government could provide RDP houses for them, she realised it might take a very long time before houses could be provided for them since there are many needy people before them on the list. “I decided to assist these families by seeking donations from fortunate people so that we could build houses for them,” she said. “I am again making a public request to any interested bodies to consider donating towards the completion of these two houses. You don’t have to give me the

money; I only provide the list of material needed and you pay directly to the suppliers who will then deliver the items.” Ms Rendani Mutula, who stays in her shack with her sister and six minors, said that she was pleased with the good work that the councillor was doing for her. “I just pray that more people see the good results achieved by our councillor and consider joining this project by supporting her with more material,” she pleaded. Those interested in helping can contact 076 990 7671.

no one to comfort and encourage them that it is not the end of the world. I want to empower young women in my community with self-discovery, perseverance and spiritual growth,” said Mavhuthu. She said she also provided cosmetic products and other needs to poor and orphaned people in her community.

According to Mavhuthu, she wants young people in her village to follow in her steps and be able to know their passions and how to realize them. Ms Linkie Chauke, registered counsellor from Voringa Psychological and Wellness Centre, said she advised young women to be dream chasers. “As young women,

you need to start something from scratch and not be the follower of some people’s driven ideas,” said Chauke. One of those young women who attended the event said that the workshop was an eye opener, because they were told to realize their dreams through persistence and hard work.

A Grade 11 learner at Mbanyela High School in Maphaphila village near Malamulele, Maanda Mavhuthu, has recently started the Mavhuthu Sisterhood Programme, aimed at empowering women to be better sisters to raped and emotionally and spiritually weak young women. Her first sisterhood programme was hosted in the Hlekani Complex hall in Malamulele on Saturday. More than 20 young women who have suffered the trauma of being raped as well as women who are emotionally and spiritually weak attended the event. They received messages of support, presentation and encouragement from the different pastors, psychologists, nurses and social workers. Mavhuthu (17) said part of the vision of her organization was to empower young women, treasure their safety, and to foster self-discovery, wellness and success in young women’s lives. “I found out that in my village of Malamulele Section D, formerly known as Mabandla, Ms Mokgadi Magozi, a nurse at Shiluvane Life Care Centre in Malamulele (left), Mavhuthu Sisterhood Promany young women are vicgramme’s Maanda Mavhuthu (right) and some of the people who attended the workshop. tims of being raped, and have

remain open for queries, client education and loan repayments,” said Brugman.

Not the same for municipalities The picture does not look rosy at all for big investors and institutions that invested more than R100 000 with VBS Mutual. It is estimated that about 97% of the 22 700 VBS retail depositors will receive all of their money, but the 3% with the large investments have reason to worry. “The amounts in excess of R100 000 will remain as deposits in VBS. These deposits will remain valid and depositors may receive a portion of their amounts above R100 000 in future, depending on successes in recovering loans and other assets due to VBS. This is, however, not certain nor guaranteed,” said Brugman. The investors that will have to wait patiently, include the municipalities such as Vhembe, Makhado and Collins Chabane, that together invested almost R500-million with the mutual bank, in spite of warnings from national treasury not to do so. Brugman emphasized that customers who have loans with VBS, must continue paying their loans as they are still legally obliged to do so. “People may face penalties and other sanctions if they fail to repay monies owed to VBS. VBS customers are requested to continue using VBS infrastructure and branches to repay their loans.,” she said.

She worked for an Engen garage for a year after being unemployed before starting her business. Mjenzi said that it was not easy to find new customers and get more people to know about her business. “It was hard at first, but I did manage to get out there and let people know of what I do.

Adv Terry Motau was subsequently appointed as an investigator. “The forensic investigation into possible fraud and malfeasance at VBS is still in progress. We expect the investigation to be completed by late August or early September 2018,” said Brugman. The preliminary findings, however, prompted the curator to launch urgent court applications last Friday to take steps to recover monies owed to VBS. “This was a necessary action required by the curator to prevent the dissipation of assets belonging to VBS,” said Brugman. In an urgent application filed in the High Court on Friday, the curator of VBS Mutual Bank asked that the estates of five of the bank’s former top officials be sequestrated. The curator also asked for the liquidation of the bank’s biggest shareholder, Vele Investments. In affidavits filed in court, more information surfaced detailing the manner in which funds were allegedly syphoned to directors of Vele Investments and top officials. The affidavits also detail how bribes were allegedly paid to officials of, among others, the PIC and Prasa, to supposedly get these organisations to pump more money into the cash-strapped VBS Mutual Bank. Apart from Vele Investments, applications have been brought against a further five individuals, being Tshifhiwa Calvin Matodzi, (former chairman of VBS Mutual Bank), Andile Ramavhunga (former CEO of VBS Mutual Bank), Philippus Truter (former CFO of VBS Mutual Bank), Phopi Mukhodobwane (general head of Treasury and Capital Management) and Robert Madzonga (former COO of VBS Mutual Bank) for the sequestration of their estates. The past weekend more revelations about the somewhat shady dealings at VBS Mutual Bank were reported in newspapers. It was reported that the bank’s head of Treasury and Capital Management, Phopi Mukhodobwane, filed an affidavit in which he “blows the lid” on how just over R1,5-billion was used by Vele Investment to buy subsidiary companies, pay lucrative bonuses and fund lavish lifestyles. Mukhodobwane alleges that millions were used to pay bribes to officials

to encourage them to pump more money into the bank. The names of ANC Youth League members, as well as a prominent Limpopo politician are mentioned as people who acted as “agents” to convince municipalities to deposit funds with VBS.

“State owes me for the five years” By Andries van Zyl A convicted double murderer is planning to sue the State for compensation, claiming that he was wrongfully incarcerated for an extra five years on top of his original 20-year life sentence. The now 57-year-old Mr Reuben Mashudu Netshiavha from Makhado saw the outside of a prison for the first time after 25 years on 5 March this year. He was convicted on two counts of murder and one of assault at the young age of 32 by the High Court in Johannesburg and sentenced to life imprisonment. He started serving his 20-year sentence on 18 March 1993. At face value, many readers might ask what exactly Netshiavha’s defence is going to be, seeing that a life sentence constitutes 25 years behind bars. There might also be those who firmly believe that a life sentence should mean just that: Spending the rest of your life in a prison cell. The South African justice system, however, makes provision that even a person who received a life sentence can be set free when a certain number of years had been served. This argument forms the basis of Netshiavha’s planned claim against the State. As a young man, Netshiavha was no angel. “To my mind you deserve the death sentence, but in all the circumstances of this case I just cannot say that that would be the only appropriate sentence. You have proved yourself to be an utter enemy of society,” said then Judge Schabort in his sentencing remarks. Netshiavha himself admits that he had made a mistake when he killed his father-in-law and the father-in-law’s 16-year-old son, while almost killing his consort in a fit of rage. “But I served my time,” said Netshiavha. The dilemma came when authorities had to decide how much time Netshiavha should serve. He was originally sentenced to life under Act 8 of 1959 of the Correctional Service Act which, at the time, stated that a sentence of life constituted a 20-year prison term. Netshiavha, however, ended up serving 25 years, after legislation changed and Act 8 of 1959 was replaced by Act 111 of 1998. In a nutshell, Act 111 of 1998 increased the old 20-year life sentence to 25 years, meaning that all inmates receiving life sentence after 1 October 2004 may not be placed on day parole after serving at least 25 years of their sentences. All inmates sentence before 1 October 2004 would serve out their life sentences under Act 8 of 1959. In short, Netshiavha was only to serve 20 years. In an interview with the Zoutpansberger, Netshiavha described his long battle with authorities, first to have him released on day parole and later just to be released as he had already exceeded his original sentence. It all started with the Pretoria High Court ruling in favour of convicted murderer Cornelius Johannes van Wyk on 26 November 2012. Van Wyk took the minister of Correctional Services to court, arguing that as he was convicted

Traditional leaders urge residents to protect assets By Elmon Tshikhudo Residents of Matsila, one of the most development-orientated rural communities in the area, held a consultative meeting with their leaders on Sunday.

From left to right are Vhamusanda Vho-David Kutama, M Chauke of Correctional Services, Sgt Khakhu Matsha, Tendani Nekhavhambe (social worker) and Suzan Raliphada (principal).

“Teachers cannot curb the rising problem of drug abuse on their own” over by criminals,” she added. She urged community mem“Youth issues that are large- bers to continue to support the ly prevalent include bullyschool. “Teachers and pupils ing, peer pressure, stress, cannot make it on their own. depression, anxiety, anger, We also need assistance from self-harming, low self-worth, the outside world, because and suicide attempts,” said joint efforts will bring better Sgt Khakhu Matshavha results in the education of during a recent drug-abuse- our children.” Matshavha said awareness presentation at that in order to combat the Luvhivhini High. scourge of drugs, the SAPS All the speakers encouraged had adopted an integrated the youth to take education and holistic approach that seriously and distance themprovided comprehensive and selves from dangerous and lasting solutions. “We are unbecoming behaviour, such deeply concerned about the as drug abuse and crime.

Matshavha said that the SAPS aimed to restore the dignity and halt the moral degeneration of the youngsters. “We teach the youth to believe in themselves and to prepare themselves for future challenges in their lives. Realising that there is a high crime rate in our area, we felt it was very important to call them together, so that we could share ideas on how we can train them to become responsible members of society,” she added. Vhamusanda Vho-David Kutama advised pupils to study hard, as it is up to each individual to make it or fail in life. He said the scholars should know what they wanted to be in life, and should also make decisions that they would not regret later in life. He said that traditional leaders were doing their utmost to inform young people in the area about the dangers of HIV/Aids, drug abuse, alcoholism, prostitution, and crime.

annual event with the theme of “StOpThEsPoT of ABUSE” at the University of Venda on 9 August. The aim of the initiative is to raise awareness of the negative impact that violence and abuse have on women and children. The organisation also aims to fight the ongoing abuse against women and children in society. The organisation was established by Avhasei Raphalalani from Tshipako Muramba, who is a victim of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. Raphalalani was molested by her step-brothers when she was still young. The 23-year-old Raphalalani was forced to enter into a relationship after she failed her virginity test in the presence of her parents at New Generation Girls Academy. “I started dating for the wrong reasons, because I was not a virgin anymore, and got pregnant after three months. My parents forced me into an early marriage and left me at my boyfriend’s home,” said

Chief Matsila said it was of paramount importance for traditional leaders to meet regularly with their own people and listen to the challenges they are facing in their daily lives. “As leaders we might not be able to meet with our people every day, but we have to demonstrate that we care for their needs by always acting in the best interests of the community. Having listened to their needs, we will now invite our local councillor to provide feedback on water and roads at our next meeting so that pertinent issues can be speedily resolved,” Matsila said. The chairman of the Matsila Royal Council, Vhavenda Vho-Abraham Matsila urged residents to protect community assets, including game fences, which have been erected and electrified to ensure the safety of both wildlife and members of the community. He warned residents of the danger of tampering with the electric fences as these could lead to serious injuries or even loss of lives.

The residents met to discuss service delivery matters affecting their livelihoods, local businesses and community development programmes. The meeting, attended by structures in the community such as the Matsila Royal Council led by Chief Livhuwani Matsila, Chief Talifhani Matsila and Vhavenda Vho-Abraham Matsila, took place at the local royal council premises. The khoro meetings are held fortnightly, while the royal leaders avail themselves once per quarter for such meetings. During the meeting, residents complained about water, which is only available for four hours a day. They said that they are worried that there are several boreholes estab-

lished by the Vhembe District Municipality which are not yet providing water to the community, because these were never equipped since installation a few years ago. The main road linking the Matsila Village with Bungeni, Njakanjaka, De Hoop and Nkuzana Villages is a source of great concern to the community as it is in a very bad condition. Access to households, business centres and community projects is made difficult, because the local municipality does not grade the streets which are now covered by big dongas and dense bushes. Youth from the village expressed their wish to participate in programs for the preservation of their culture, heritage and tradition, including traditional dances and arts and crafts, while elders indicated they needed assistance in terms of kits for sports such as soccer and a variety of recreation programs to entertain themselves and maintain healthy lifestyles.

government supplied solar systems to us and promised to bring us electricity in due time,” Mufamadi said. “The challenge with solar systems was that one couldn’t operate stoves, fridges and other electrical appliances. It was generally for lights, small televisions, radio, and for charging our mobile phones. Today we are happy because the municipality fulfilled their promise.” Sinyosi said that the municipality is writing a positive history for the residents of Tshikhwani village. “It took us many years to plan and even-

The coffin of little Rinae is being lowered during her funeral at Sheshe.

Still no explanation for Rinae’s death By Elmon Tshikhudo A call was made for the community to continue giving support to the grief-stricken family of the 8-year-old girl who died mysteriously while on a school trip in Durban. The incident took place a fortnight ago. Rinae Mutheiwana, a Grade 2 learner at Sheshe Primary School outside Thohoyandou, was found behind the block of flats they were staying in. How she ended up there remains a mystery as even those who were with her could not explain how she died. She was buried during a solemn and sombre funeral on Saturday at the local cemetery after a service was held at her home. Many community members, school staff, fellow learners, family,

relatives, the ward councillor and church members braved the chilly winter weather to give he a befitting send-off. Cllr Leah Nelufhangani said the death of the young learner is a tragedy that befell not only the family, but also the community. “This death left us with more questions than answers. Only God has the answers and we have to leave all to Him. Let’s all pray for them that God heal their wounds,” she said. Family representative Nditsheni Nyamutambo said they were saddened by the passing on of Rinae. “She was a child of God who attended church conferences and was a very respectful child. We know we cannot change this situation and have accepted that she is gone.” Rinae was born at Dovhoni in 2009, where she started school. At the time of her death she was in Grade 2 at Sheshe Primary School.

Vhembe committed to service delivery By Silas Nduvheni

win-win solutions whereby the bottlenecks in the affected areas could be addressed. “We are proud to announce that water shortages will be a thing of the past in some areas as there are some water projects standing at 90-100% completion,” she said. She mentioned that the bulk line from NN20B to Muraga via Mangondi was 100% completed, the Makonde water reticulation project was up and running and the refurbishment of maturation ponds at Biaba was 100% completed. The construction of the bulk pipeline from Vuwani to the Middle Letaba system was 96% complete, the Mulima, Likhade, Laambani and Pfananani Water Supply project stood at 98% and the Luphephe/Nwanedi-Masisi project was 99% finished, she said.

The executive mayor of the Vhembe District Municipality (VDM), Cllr Florence Radzilani, said her administration was committed to service delivery to her communities, in spite of “inheriting” a municipality some three years ago where most systems had virtually collapsed. “For well-known reasons, Vhembe District was classified under the category of dysfunctional municipalities because of a number of challenges that were allowed to drag this municipality down. We have today, as we are speaking, turned around the corner in rebuilding the municipality,” said Radzilani. According to Radzilani, some of the major challenges that affected the VDM in the past include poor spending of conditional grants for the year 2015/16 financial year and the non-functionality of governance structures. Several critical posts were not filled and, to make matters worse, the municipality received a disclaimer from the auditor-general. “However, these have been corrected,” she said. Radzilani told a large group of people, which included mayors and traditional leaders, that the budget for the new financial year totalled R1,6 billion.

Well-known gogo Mudzunga Mukhwevho Mudau died a fortnight ago after a long illness at her house at Vuvha. The family spokesperson, Mr Aaron Nevombe, said the family members were saddened by the passing away of the gogo, as she was regarded as a light to the family and the nation at large. “We are truly devastated, as we have lost a pillar of the family. Everyone looked up to her for advice,” she said. Nevombe said that Mukhwevho was a very solemn, restrained and dignified granny. “For many years, she served selflessly and faithfully in different communities, created employment for many families and in dark days she made herself available day and night to all who needed her,” he added. The mayor of the Makhado Local Municipality, Cllr Shonisani Sinyosi, said that community members around Vhembe and South Africa were deeply touched by the passing away of Mukhwevho.


mer Pres Jacob Zuma and Vhavenda King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana last year. “We have set side aside more than R556 million for water challenges as we are the Water Services Authority, and we urge traditional leaders to help us with the delivery of water services. We were worried when some traditional leaders continued to stop water projects and demanded money from service providers,” she added. Radzilani said among the projects that were affected by these challenges were the bulk pipeline from Vuwani to the Middle Letaba system, the Malonga water reticulation project, the Xikundu/Mhinga Bulk Water Supply project and the Vuwani-to-Vyeboom Water Supply project. She urged traditional leaders and communities to put aside their differences in order to find



March highlights drug abuse in Musina Welfare Matters “The fact that there were nearly 400 suspects arrested and charged for drug trafficking in Musina clearly indicates that we have a serious problem of drug abuse in our community. It is not a secret that drugs like nyaope, cocaine, dagga, crack, heroin and mandrax are openly sold to our community members, more worse - even on school yards.” These were the words of Mayor Mihloti Muhlope when addressing hundreds of community members who took part in the march against drug abuse organized by Musina Municipality on Monday. Muhlope said she feels very emotional when she talks about issues relating to alcohol and

drug abuse. “I know of many promising youths whose lives were destroyed because of drugs. The physical damage and mental disorders caused by drug and alcohol abuse are irreversible. What type of future generation are we creating if we don’t stand up and say no to drugs? My humble request is that we work closely with all community structures and the police to eliminate this demon of alcohol and drug abuse in our municipality.” She said that the drug lords are found within the communities “and it is our responsibility to expose them. We live with them in our families and some of them are our friends and relatives. Why do we then choose to keep quiet while they continue to destroy our community? Let us all be aggressive by not

allowing our municipality to become a paradise of drug lords.” She commended the local police, community stakeholders and the public who are taking the fight against drug abuse very seriously. “We need more ambassadors who will stand up and say no to drug abuse. The law enforcement agencies should also hand down harsh sentences to drug lords so that they can serve as examples that dealing with drugs does not pay.” She acknowledged the “extra ordinary” work by a group of volunteers, Citizens against crime. “Without getting a single cent, these men and women patrol the streets of Musina every night to make sure that we are all safe and drugs are not smuggled into our town.”

Lufuno Phalandwa sings in Midnight Hour Worship

By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Hardly two years after obtaining a third position at the Rofhiwa Gospel Star Search, Tshivenḓa gospel artist Lufuno Phalandwa (25) has recorded his debut live CD and DVD at a fully packed community hall at Ha-Mutsha, near Levubu, a fortnight ago. The album is aptly titled Midnight Hour Worship and it comprises 20 songs, 18 of which are new compositions. The album was recorded under the local music stable Mukurob Media and was produced by music guru Thendo Ramulondi. “I am out of words, this was just the work of the Almighty God,” Lufuno said. “I knew that the recording was going to be

big, but I didn’t expect it to be that great. Many thanks to my supporters for the love and support they showed me.” Lufuno’s musical style is fresh and lucid, backed up by his amazing, but strong voice of an accomplished singer. He has a unique voice and his style of writing songs is different. “I believe in setting the trend and remain original at all times,” he said. “I may appear new in the music industry, but what keeps me strong and confident is that people appreciate my work, because of my style which makes my music shine with the quality of its own. My supporters and the gospel industry at large deserve a fresh taste of gospel music – and I have just brought that taste

The organisation cares for to the orphaned and destitute children. In his project he featured other young singers such as Ngudo Praise, Kgaugelo Kekana and Grace Nakana. He extended his gratitude to Mukurob Media for believing in him and helping him find his ground in the music industry. “I didn’t expect gospel lovers to flock into the hall to support an unknown youngster like me,” he said. “Oh – I love all those people!”

Donald “Bingi Ras” believes reggae is the music that feeds the soul A talented producer at Phalaphala FM, Tshililo Donald “Bingi Ras” Khanari, has ascribed his popularity and media excellence to hard work and determination. He is a Talk Show producer at the radio station. He explained that he had a passion for media from a young age. “I loved media from the age of 15, but I was more interested in newspapers and the print media,” he said. “I have been a news fanatic all my life.” He said that he saw himself as a self-motivated and a naturally hardworking person who adapted to changes without hesitation. “I remember I had to work twice as hard for my BA degree in media studies,” he said. He started his career as a radio presenter at Univen Radio in 2005. A cameraman of note, Khanari also cut his teeth in writing as a contributing scribe for the Univen in-house magazine Nendila, Thulamela newsletter, Rise and Shine and the Valley Messenger newspaper. “Writing is just something ingrained in me.” In 2008 he joined the SABC as a presenter for SABC Education’s development and learner support. “I am currently presenting a Reggae programme on Saturday,” he said. Khanari is live on air between 12:00 and 14:00 on Saturdays and promises to give the listeners the best of reggae sounds. About the music, he says: “Reggae gives me the much-needed spiritual connection with the Creator of mankind, social consciousness and historical reawakening. One can never be whole without these aspects of life. I just hope I am sailing at the

same pace as my listeners, because this is truly our journey together.” He added that as a hard worker, his personal objective is to establish himself in the environment “where my theoretical knowledge and practical experience can be fully utilised.” He admitted that breaking into radio journalism was not an easy thing. “I had to work even harder to prepare myself for employment,” he said. “It makes me feel proud to break the stories that suddenly become the talk of the town and bring changes to many areas of our society,” he said. “Many a time I expressed my deep emotions through writing,” said the energetic producer. He urged young people to refrain from all acts of criminality and focus on school work. According to him, pupils need to be given moral education that encourages them to stay away from committing crimes. “It is important for elders and teachers to tell the children about the dangers of involving themselves in crime,” he said.

“Louis Trichardt Memorial is our hospital of shame” - families By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Hospitals are places where people seek comfort, hope, and healing when they are sick – but this becomes an ironic tragedy when their physical pain is compounded by mental anguish because of the bad treatment some apparently get from unsympathetic medical professionals. A resident of Tshirolwe village in the Nzhelele area, Ms Sophie Magadani (65), was recently admitted to LTT Memorial Hospital. According to Magadani's family, the treatment she got was not what would be expected from such a facility. “She fell off the bed after the nurse failed to lock its wheels, and she was then assisted by another patient after her crying for help fell on deaf ears,” said Magadani's son, Tshifhiwa Magadani. “I learnt from other patients that while all this was happening, the nurses were sleeping and didn't want to be disturbed.” He indicated that when tte nurses finally did come over to her bed, they harshly insulted

her. Magadani added that the hospital's x-ray scanner has not worked for a period of three months now and that this is adversely affecting patients. “Even when we visited my mother during her stay in the hospital, the linen on her bed was always dirty. The floor and bedside locker were also not clean, and rotting from decay and negligence,” he said. “An empty, dirty drip bag that had held blood for transfusion lay on the floor long after it was removed from her body, and nobody bothered to dispose of it. We even took some pictures with our mobile phones because we were not happy with the state of the ward she was housed in.” Ms Magadani was eventually discharged. However, she went to LTT Memorial Hospital for a routine check-up on 28 June, but she was turned away on the basis that she was from Nzhelele and not Louis Trichardt. She was very disappointed by the way everything transpired. “They said that she should go to Siloam Hospital, even though she had been admitted to LLT Memorial and her

doctor was based there,” said that 37 000 posts are vacant tively. All these hospitals are officer with their concerns. “No Magadani. “I feel that this in South Africa's hospitals, in a shabby state, and I know patient or family members of shabby treatment towards our health centres and clinics, and what I am talking about as I the patient should keep quiet people must come to a stop.

Christian women's ministries of the Uniting Reformed Church from the Free State and Tshikota came together to give to the needy at Ferdie Beyers hall in Louis Trichardt a fortnight ago. The project of giving back to the communities started when the church was established 24 years ago. The ministry is set to meet its target in 2020 after covering all the communities in Southern Africa. A total of 29 families and eight special schools in the Makhado municipal area and Thohoyandou have benefited from the project. According to the president of the

northern synod and the general synod (URCSA and CWM), Dr Matlhodi Teu, the aim of the project is to take care of the needy as stated in the church's constitution. Teu said she gave glory to God for bringing such a resolution to her mind to help needy people. “I feel inspired to encourage women of the ministry to cater for orphans and needy people who require help. There are also some members from the church who benefited from this project,” she said. Teu encouraged women to complete the tasks that God had set them to do. “Continue to do good and don't expect to get paid for doing a great

job. Your reward will be waiting for you in Heaven. As women, we must work hard, the way God wants us to.” Teu concluded that two places were left to see, namely Turfloop and Mokopane, to reach the aim of their constitution. Ms Violet Magwira said that the project used to fund special schools in Tshilidzini, hospitals, and in Mozambique. “When the project started, we catered for special schools, but we saw a need to take care of those around us who needed more help. As a ministry, we decided to take care of the child-headed families and the poor from the church. Even the drop-in centers,” she said.

Magwira concluded that the women's ministry will continue to take care of poor families in the future. One of the beneficiaries, Ms Brunhildah Thukhutha from Tshiombo Drop-In Centre, said that the centre had never received such donations before. “We thank the church. May God bless them to continue to give to the needy, because there are many children who need support. I believe they can change the world if they continue doing this. I have never seen something like this before. They have taken care of poor people in a miraculous way,” she said.

Away matches for Chippas and Stars Collins Chabane excels in FNB Sasol Women’s League

The fight for league champions and also to avoid relegation at the end of the season will continue among the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League this weekend. Eight matches will be played throughout the province over the weekend. Two of the three Vhembe based sides, Chippas United Ladies and Shayandima Morning Stars, will play their matches away from home. Chippas will travel to Botlokwa tomorrow, where they will test their strength against the Botlokwa Ladies at the Sefene High School grounds. The Chippas technical team are still battling to find a winning combination. The team’s performance has been deteriorating with time in the past weeks. Botlokwa must keep a watchful eye on the Chippas’ midfielders, Maggie Mukhuwana, Makwana Mashalane and Mokgadi Senyolo or else they will not know what will have hit them at the end of the day. Although Chippas are currently fighting for survival, the club’s chairman, Mr Robson Magoro, is adamant that his side will soon

make a comeback. Shayandima Morning Stars will visit Mandebele Happy Fighters at the Mandebele grounds in Zebediela. Morning Stars are one of the close contenders for the league title and a win against Mandebele will add more pressure to the pace setters, Maindis Ladies. Maindis Ladies will host Sisters FC at the Capricorn FET College campus grounds, while Tshandama Young Stars will visit the Kanatla Ladies at the

Nylstroom Hoërskool grounds. The rookies, First Touch Academy, will host the University of Limpopo at the Ladanna grounds in Polokwane. Mphanama Ladies will enjoy home ground advantage in their match against Samba Girls at the Mphanama grounds. Real Mighty Ladies will lock horns with Re Tla Dira at the Dipitsi grounds. On Sunday Moria Sweepers will play against Seven Stars at the Moria grounds.

Public Notice

Application for the Trial Release of genetically modified maize Pioneer Hi-Bred RSA (Pty) Ltd (DuPont Pioneer), P.O. Box 8010, Centurion 0046; hereby informs the public about its intention to submit an application for the intentional introduction (conduct trial release) of genetically modified maize events into the South African environment. The GM maize to be introduced have insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant traits. MON 89034 × TC1507 × MIR162 × NK603 x DAS-40278-9 and (ii) TC1507 × MIR162 × NK603 maize will be submitted. The purpose of the trials will be to evaluate the agronomic characteristics of these maize plants when planted in South African conditions. Both MON 89034 × TC1507 × MIR162 × NK603 x DAS-40278-9 and TC1507 × MIR162 × NK603 maize were produced by conventional breeding methods between the progeny of various genetically modified maize events namely MON 89034, TC1507, MIR162, NK603, and DAS-40278-9 maize. The transformations in these maize events resulted in the introduction of various genes, namely cry1A.105, cry2Ab2, cry1F, vip3Aa20, pat, pmi, cp4 epsps, and aad-1 genes into the stacked maize events. Expression of the Cry1A.105, Cry2Ab2, Cry1F and Vip3Aa20 proteins confer protection against certain lepidopteran maize pests. Expression of PAT, CP4 EPSPS and AAD-1 proteins confer tolerance to glufosinateammonium, glyphosate and 2,4-D herbicides, respectively. PMI protein expression was used as a selectable marker during MIR162 maize transformation.

The Bilisi champions, Mutele FC.

The maize varieties that will be tested are white and yellow maize cultivars. The trial release will occur at the following areas: Brits, Bela-Bela, Delmas, Groblersdal, Jan Kempsdorp, Leandra, Letsitele, Malelane, Nigel, Pretoria, Potchefstroom, Roodeplaat, Rustenburg, Standerton and Schoemanskloof. The trials will be laid out in approximately 0.5 to 1.0 hectare fields and positioned as stipulated in the guidelines, in order to be in compliance with all required conditions.

Lepelle Northern Water (LNW) is a Water Board established in terms of the Water Services Act, No 108 of 1997 as a bulk water supply and related water services provider, operating several water purification works and supply schemes in the Limpopo Province.


Exposure to the environment outside the experimental sites and other maize crops will be avoided through both physical measures as well as spatial and temporal isolation. Upon harvesting of the trials, all resulting seed along with plant material remaining in the field will be destroyed in compliance with the GMO Act, 15 of 1997. The trial site will be monitored through the next growing season for volunteer maize plants. Volunteers will be destroyed before flowering by mechanical tillage or appropriate herbicide application. All interested parties should submit comments or objections, in connection with the intended release, in writing to: The Registrar: Genetically Modified Organisms Act Private Bag X973 Pretoria 0001 Fax No: 012 319 6298 E-mail: All comments or objections must be received within 30 days from publication of this notice.
