Tienjarige in en uit hospitaal, nadat vriend se boerboel hom aan kop gryp en kopvel afskeur

Boerboel verskeur 10-jarige “Daar was so baie bloed gewees ...” Deur Isabel Venter Vir die De Beer-gesin van Louis Trichardt gaan hierdie Kersseisoen ‘n donker een wees… Hulle jongste, klein Jacques (10), is sedert Maandag, 5 Desember, in en uit die hospitaal, nadat sy kopvel deur ‘n boerboel afgeskeur is. “Daar was so baie bloed gewees …” vertel ma Erika vanuit die 1 Militêre Hospitaal in Pretoria. Jacques is rustig en slaap, terwyl hy wag vir die teater om oop te gaan. Erika werk by die Lugmagbasis Makhado se mediese sentrum en pa Andries is ‘n vlugsersant. “Die teater is ongelooflik besig - ons is nog nie seker wanneer ons gehelp gaan word nie,” het Erika gesê. Jacques wag vir ‘n operasie waarin dié deel van sy kopvel wat hulle kon red, weer verwyder moet word. “Die vel wou nie weer aan sy skedel heg nie.” Jacques het dié dag van die voorval by ‘n maatjie gekuier toe die boerboel hom gegryp het. “Niemand weet hoekom die hond hom gebyt het nie,” sê Erika. “Die hond ken vir Jacques.” Die boerboel het, terwyl Jacques hom getroetel het, hom aan die kop gebyt en rondgepluk. In die proses is die kopvel losgeskeur. Aanvanklik het niemand agtergekom dat Jacques se kopvel afgeruk was nie - daar was te veel bloed. Die maatjie se ma het net handdoeke gebring, om sy kop gedraai en deurgejaag na die mediese sentrum. Dit was by die mediese sentrum, terwyl daar gepoog is om al die bloed te stop, dat die omvang van Jacques se wonde besef is. “Al drie lae vel is afgeruk.”

Jacques se kopvel is tussen die boerboel se beddegoed teruggekry. Van hierdie stuk vel is ‘n dun lagie afgesny en op ‘n deel van Jacques se kopwonde terug “geplak”. Van die basis is Jacques per ambulans na die MediClinic in Polokwane gehaas. Omdat sy kopvel nie lekker terug wou groei nie, moes hy hierdie week na Pretoria geneem word vir chirurgiese behandeling. Vir eers, verduidelik Erika, sal die dokters klein chirurgiese ballonnetjies langs die snywonde inplant. Dié ballonnetjies moet dan elke dag opgeblaas word, sodat sy vel kan rek en dan hopelik oor die wonde toegroei. As dit nie werk nie, sal daar gekyk word na veloorplantings. Intussen is Jacques se ouboet, Ian (13), ook in Pretoria om ‘n spesialis te sien. Ian het feitlik al die gehoor verloor in een van sy ore. ‘n Gaatjie wat nie heeltemal toegegroei het nadat sy dreineringspypie uitgehaal is nie, is die oorsaak. Hy is ook tans in remissie, nadat hy leukemie gehad het toe hy maar net 14 maande oud was. Intussen is Erika met fibromyalgia, ‘n pynlike siekte wat die spiere en weefsel aantas, gediagnoseer. Kort voor haar kinders se hospitalisasie is Erika se bankrekening ook nog gekloon en is vir drie maande gevries, hangende ‘n ondersoek. Asof dit nie erg genoeg is nie, het die familie se bullterrier die naweek nog sy been ook gebreek. “Die Kersfees gaan maar bedruk wees. Ons sal volgende jaar weer ‘n poging aanwend,” het Erika gesê. Intussen is die boerboel wat vir Jacques gegryp het, kort na die voorval vankant gemaak. Erika het almal bedank wat gebel het, boodskappies gestuur het en vir hulle gebid het. “Ons is baie geseënd en dankbaar dat die Here ons op ons knieë hou.”

Farming community extremely pleased with the arrest of suspected cattle thieves caught in the act Two suspected cattle thieves’ luck ran out last week when they were caught in the act by an undercover agent and policemen. Their arrest was welcomed by local farmers in a time when stock theft is rampant in the Louis Trichardt area. The two men, Thomas Mbilinganye (30) and Eric Mugeri (38), were arrested last Thursday when they tried to sell a cow that they had just slaughtered to the undercover agent. This arrest, however, came with a big price tag. Owner and local farmer Mr Koos Venter estimated the value of the cow, a heifer whose firstborn calf is only six months old, at around R10 000. Venter, who lives in town, was woken by a neighbour on Thursday evening, informing him that the police were looking for him at the farm. When he reached his farm, police were already there with the

two men in custody. According to information supplied, Mbilinganye and Mugeri were approached by the agent working on another farm, asking them for meat. Shortly after the cow was killed, the agent was contacted and given directions to Venter’s farm to come and collect the meat. The agent then informed the police’s dog and stocktheft unit, who supplied him with an unmarked police vehicle to go and pick up the meat. Mbilinganye and Mugeri were arrested shortly after pointing out the cow they had allegedly killed. The animal was caught with a wire snare, after which it was tied to a tree. While still alive, it was hacked to death with pangas. Although Venter lost a cow in the process, he was extremely pleased with the

police’s arrest. “What people don’t get is that cattle thieves are depriving us local famers of our primary source of income,” Venter said. He is one of many farmers who have to struggle with stock thieves and their destructive methods. On his farm, it has become a daily habit to clean up and gather snares, which not only pose a risk for the cattle but other wildlife as well. Last year, Venter lost several cattle to theft, of which one was slaughtered in his kraal. “We really hope that these guys, if found guilty, will receive the maximum sentence,” said Venter. In the meantime, Mbilinganye and Mugeri appeared in the Louis Trichardt Magistrate’s Court on Monday on charges of stock theft. They will, however, have to remain in custody until 4 January next year for a formal bail application.

Nege vermeende wildstropers word vasgetrek Die lang arm van die gereg het uiteindelik 10 vermeende wilddiewe bygekom. Nege van die 10 het verlede Donderdag in die landdroshof op Louis Trichardt verskyn op ‘n klagte van onwettige jag van bedreigde diere sonder die nodige permitte.

Musina Council suspends their absent manager The Musina Municipal Council suspended its municipal manager, Mr Ntshavheni Abram Luruli, during a special sitting last Thursday. The decision to suspend Luruli, according to the Council, came after he had absconded from work

for four months without permission from the council. It was revealed that Luruli had taken leave from 1 April and was supposed to have returned to work on 1 June, which he failed to do. Instead, he reported to office on Friday, 11 November. Before he was suspended, Luruli was served with a letter, after a resolution was taken on the intention to suspend him, during a Council meeting held on 15 November. He was ordered to submit in writing why he thought the Council should not suspend him. Luruli then responded and submitted a written response through his lawyer. The controversial Luruli also faces charges of corruption, maladministration, failure to comply with the Municipal Finance Management Act and the unlawful awarding of tenders. Suspended Musina municipal manager Mr The spokesperson of the municiAbram Luruli. pality, Mr Wilson Dzebu, confirmed

Luruli’s suspension on Monday. He admitted that Luruli was being investigated by the Special Investigation Unit. “The council suspended Luruli, following the findings and submission of a report to council by the Special Investigation Unit,” he said. According to Dzebu, the municipal manager has been suspended with full salary, until the finalisation of the allegations against him. He said that Luruli was therefore instructed to vacate his office. He can only enter the municipal buildings by appointment, “because the Council feels that his presence at work might jeopardise the investigation and possibly interfere with potential witnesses.” Upon receipt of the suspension letter, Luruli was ordered to hand in any of the municipality’s property within his possession, including his official cellphone, laptop and his office keys.

Hofnuus Louis Trichardt residents were yet again subjected to bone-dry taps last week. According to the Makhado Municipality, this was due to one of the main pumps at the Albasini Dam breaking down last Wednesday night. While some parts of town had little to no water on Tuesday, almost the whole of Louis Trichardt had no water by Friday. This was after the reservoirs had run dry. Municipal spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi explained on Monday that two much smaller pumps were deployed to supply water while the main pump was being fixed by contractors. “The two pumps were not able to keep the reservoirs full,” he said. Bobodi further said that although some of the water supply was restored by Saturday, people “should just bear with them while the main pump is being fixed.” The pump was expected to be repaired during the course of this week. Meanwhile, residents had to collect their daily supply of water by wheelbarrow and bucket. This lady was spotted in Douthwait Street filling up several plastic buckets with water from her neighbour’s borehole.

Lotz-moordverhoor sal uiteindelik in 2012 begin Die moordverhoor van die 29-jarige Karel Lotz sal eers volgende jaar op Louis Trichardt ‘n aanvang neem. Dié klag teen Lotz, wat tans in Polokwane woonagtig is, spruit uit ‘n voorval in Junie verlede jaar toe sy huismaat, mnr. Pedro Cisco le Grange (31), onder raaiselagtige omstandighede dood aangetref is op sy plaas Platkoppies naby Morebeng (Soekmekaar). Lotz het Maandag hier in die landdroshof verskyn. Le Grange se liggaam is in ‘n plas bloed op sy kamervloer, oortrek met talle diep

snywonde, aangetref. Hy het vermoedelik doodgebloei. Behalwe dat sy kamer rooi was van die bloed, is daar binne en buite die huis ook bloedspore gevind. Langs Le Grange se oorskot was die stukke van ‘n gebreekte teekoppie, ‘n stopverfmes en deel van iets wat vermoedelik ‘n tand is. Lotz, wat eers in ‘n later stadium deur die polisie gearresteer is, moes ná Le Grange se moord behandeling ontvang vir wonde aan sy gesig.

Met sy inhegtenisname het hy glo aan ondersoekbeamptes gesê dat Le Grange selfmoord gepleeg het. Lotz is tydens sy eerste hofverskyning op 7 September verlede jaar in die Sekgosese hof op R3 500 borg vrygelaat. Tydens Maandag se verskyning is Lotz se saak uitgestel tot 27 Maart volgende jaar, waarna sy verhoor sal begin. Sy saak is herhaaldelik hierdie jaar uitgestel omdat daar gewag is vir ‘n forensiese verslag rondom die bloedspatsels wat op die misdaadtoneel gevind is.

Action plan is no plan at all, says SRPA

Representatives of the Soutpansberg Ratepayers Association turned up for the site inspection visit arranged by the Makhado Muncipality. Neither the Municipal Manager nor the Director of Technical Services were available for the inspection. From left are Messrs Johan Fourie and Willie Botha, Ms Inga Gilfillan (Chairperson), Mr Herman Smith, Ms Aretha Smith (manager of the SRPA) and Mr Solly Maano (Vice Chairperson).

As part of their opening ceremony, the Community Policing Forum (CPF) and the Youth Against Crime (YAC) held a peaceful march through Louis Trichardt on Monday morning. Youth groups will consist of different unemployed youths from the surrounding villages. They will be patrolling in and around Louis Trichardt, in collaboration with the Makhado police force to curb crime.

The Makhado Municipality finally tabled its action plan to address issues of service delivery with the Soutpansberg Ratepayers Association (SRPA), but according to the association it is “no action plan” at all. The municipality resolved that their action plan would be ready seven days after the high-powered meeting of 27 October where five representatives of the SRPA and their lawyer met with the municipal manager, Mr Shadrack Tshikalange, and six municipal officials, three members of KWCRS (Khuvutlu Water, Consultation, Roads and Services), two representatives of the Department of Water Affairs and Ms Florah Nkoana of Cogta provincial support. “It was agreed that the municipality would submit a report and the action plan. Seven days were set aside to present a plan, the next seven days inspection in loco would take place and in the last seven days …. the SRPA would release the money,” municipal spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi said. The final action plan document was only received nearly a month after the 27 October meeting. The site inspection arranged for 7 December was ignored by the municipality and the SRPA representatives waited in vain. They left a while after Tshikalange rushed right through the group waiting for him and disappeared into the office of his secretary. Shortly afterwards, the municipality’s director of technical serivces, Mr Thivho Ralulimi, informed the group that he had earlier given an official an order to let everybody know that he would not be available. The SRPA delegation on their part then refused to go on a site inspection without officials with decision-making power. In the meantime, the chairperson of the Soutpansberg Ratepayers Association, Ms Inga Gilfillan, responded to the municipality’s action plan entitled “Response to Issues Raised by the SRPA.” “We do not merely raise issues; no, we have a dispute document for which an action plan is required. An action plan has starting dates and finishing dates … We are highly concerned that the action plan merely states underfunding and mismanagement, together with wasteful expenditure,” Gilfillan said. With regard to the rates, the municipality’s action plan states that the public was

consulted through public participation as confirmed by the Department of Local Government. The SRPA begged to differ and said that the rate randage was never discussed with anyone. Concerning sewer spillage, the action plan indicates that the Eltivillas sewerage booster pump repair work was done on 8 November. The spillages in “Malherbe street, the brewery sewer pump station and corner Byles and Industria Streets were as the result of the non–functionality of the Vlei pump station, which is now fixed.” The SRPA, however, wanted to see how and where these repairs had been done. On the issue of water supply, the action plan states that water restrictions are being implemented as a credit control measure with all members of public. The cause for the water shortage, according to the action plan, is that “the demand is higher than the available water”. A tender for upgrading the Albasini Water Treatment Works has been advertised. “The Nandoni pipeline construction is being fast-tracked by the Department of Water Affairs,” reads the action plan. A new contractor has been appointed to tackle the incomplete reservoir at Mowcop and the site handover was done on 18 November. Ralulimi told Gilfillan that the contractor had 28 days to appear on site. According to the action plan, the municipality needs funding for street rehabilitation of Byles, Verreyne, Van der Lith, Brown and Van der Bergh Street in the industrial area. In Eltivillas, First, Fifth and Sixth Street were included in the multi -year program from 2011 to 2013, a programme which is funded by the Municipal Infrastructure Grant. “This is no action plan, saying that funds are needed without any action or completion dates. There is no street rehabilitation on the regional priority needs document. The streets were last resurfaced in 1994. A pavement management plan needs to be in place to show what is happening to all roads in the next 20 years,” said Gilfillan. On electricity, the action plan states that electricity blocking or restriction is being implemented as a credit control measure. “There is nothing in the action plan regarding maintenance, refurbishing, replacement and a disposal plan as required by legislation. Electricity is only mentioned as a means of a debt collection policy,” Gilfillan said. With regard to pre-paid electricity, the vicechairperson of the SRPA, Mr Solly Maano, said that in the mayor’s budget speech of 2008, promises were made that pre-paid vendor points and vending machines would be established. “It is nearly the end of 2011 and we are still waiting. People who buy directly from Eskom buy around the clock and their electricity is not switched off, even if they are in arrears. To this the municipality states that 24-hour vending of pre-paid electricity will be established by the end of the current financial year, which is June 2012.”

Vuwani police have arrested four suspects in connection with the rape of an 18-year-old girl and her 36-year-old mother. The incident happened last week Thursday at Lwamondo village. According to police information, the suspects, who are between the ages of 22 and 24, forced open a window of the victim’s house. Once in the house, one suspect supposedly gagged the mother whilst the remaining suspects proceeded to her daughter’s room. Sometime during the attack the girl was allegedly dragged from her house and raped outside by one suspect, while her mother was also raped by another suspect. After the rape, the suspects fled from the scene on foot, making off with the victims’ cell phone, cash and clothing. Shortly after the incident, police set up a task team to investigate the matter. The first arrest was made on Thursday, while the remaining three suspects were arrested over the weekend. All four appeared in the Vuvani Magistrate’s Court on Monday on charges of rape and house robbery. Their names are known to the Zoutpansberger but are being withheld until the time that they make a plea before the court.In the meantime, provincial police spokesperson Lt Col Ronel Otto confirmed on Monday that the police are also still looking for three more suspects who had allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl at Mvelaphanda village. This incident happened at the same time that the daughter and mother were raped. The two incidents could not be linked.

‘n Motorfietsongeluk het die lewe van mnr. Eric Brown (64) geëis. Die ongeluk het op Saterdag, 26 November, naby Kareedouw in die Suid-Kaap plaasgevind. Volgens sy bedroefde dogter, me. Luzelle Brown, was dit ‘n fratsongeluk, waarin die petrol vasgehaak het en haar pa beheer oor die motorfiets verloor het. Hy het vier ure na die ongeluk aan sy beserings beswyk. Brown, pa van Luzelle en Chanel van Louis Trichardt, is op 7 Oktober 1947 in die Humansdorp omgewing gebore. In die sewentigerjare het hy die Sentraal Slaghuis in Louis Trichardt besit en was baie bekend in die slaghuis- en vleisbedryf. Eric was ook lid van die Rotariër motorfietsklub. Brown woon die afgelope 24 jaar in die Kaap, met George as sy werksplek. Hy het gereeld opgekom na die noorde en was baie lief vir die Bosveld. Brown laat sy twee dogters en talle familielede en vriende agter. ‘n Roudiens is vir hom op 3 Desember in Mosselbaai gehou. Daar sal ook ‘n roudiens vir hom op 22 Desember om 14:00 in Laerskool Louis Trichardt se skoolsaal gehou word.

Local historian Charles Leaches with his “trophy”, given to him by Australian Commander James Unkles, who petitioned the British Government in vain to pardon Harry “Breaker” Morant and Handcock, executed for charges of murders on war prisoners in the Anglo- Boer War. The macabre actions of the Australian Bushveldt Carbineer unit during the Anglo Boer war in the Soutpansberg is the longest-surviving incident of the war. By Linda van der Westhuizen

During their annual induction and prize-giving function over the past weekend, Round Table 66 Zoutpansberg bade farewell to three of its members who have now become “too old” to be a part of this international charity organisation. All is not, however, lost for them as the three now form part of the local 41ers club – an organisation formed to support the work of Round Table. Pictured in front, from left, are the town’s newest 41ers Jan du Plessis, Jaco Kok and Freddie de Swardt. Behind them are 41ers Brian du Plooy, Gavin Watson and Gideon Mellows. As a going-away present, old-timers Jan, Jaco and Freddie were each given a “modified” walking stick to assist them. By Frans van der Merwe

A murder controversy that just won’t die

The Australian Bushveldt Carbineer unit’s actions during the Anglo Boer War (1899-1902) in the Soutpansberg comprises the longestsurviving incident of that war. The incident has been kept alive by Australia’s attempts to have charges of murder against two of their officers, Lts Harry “Breaker” Morant and Peter Handcock, reviewed. Last week, local historian Charles Leach, involved with the Zoutpansberg Skirmishes and Hericombat malaria mosquitos started tage Foundation, received letters in this regard from at the end of September and is both the Australian and the British governments.

Programme in full swing to combat malaria The number of cases of malaria in Limpopo is currently normal for this time of the year, according to the latest statistics. Of the reported cases, most are in the Vhembe district. The available statistics for the current quarter, from October to the present date, are Capricorn District with two cases, Mopane with 33 cases, Vhembe with 97 cases and Waterberg with two. An increase in the number of cases is usually experienced towards the end of December and the beginning of January. The department is consequently still busy with an energetic prevention campaign.

The campaign includes an extensive spraying programme in high-risk areas and a widespread information and education programme throughout the province by means of flyers, pamphlets and malaria-prevention information events. Malaria prevention by means of personal protection against mosquito bites and early recognition of symptoms are highlighted in the programme. The main symptoms are fever, severe headache, nausea and vomiting. When such symptoms are detected, the patient should be brought to the nearest health facility as soon as possible.

had already presented a petition to the British Government, requesting a pardon for their officers who were convicted of murder. The request was rejected, apparently because no new evidence had been brought to the table. A very persistent Unkles then persuaded the Australian Attorney-General to pursue the pardon cause once more. “We recently discovered that Australia’s petition to the UK was already their second attempt. We understand that they are busy with their third attempt to pursue the matter,” Leach said. Leach therefore wrote open letters to Australia’s Attorney-General, the Honourable Robert McClelland MP, as well as to the British Secretary of State for Defence, the Right Honourable Philip Hammond MP. Leach wanted a straight answer from Australia. “Could you confirm whether it is the official policy of the current Australian Government to condone the war crimes for which Morant and Handcock were convicted?” was the question. He also requested them to involve the South Africans, since Leach and other Friends the Zoutpansberg Skirmishes and Heritage Foundation maintain that they have unearthed the true facts of the BVC murders. “The Attorney-General considers that this case raises procedural fairness concerns and wishes to ensure that the British Government is aware that questions exist as to wether the men received fair treatment, in accordance with the standards accepted at the time … the Attorney- General will not be asking the British Government to pardon the men, but rather to consider all relevant issues,” reads the Australian answer to Leach’s letter. “Australia is still not answering the questions directly. Australia is still not involving the South Africans,” Leach said.The British Ministry of Defence wrote that “whilst there has been some press reporting of the Australian Government’s intention to write to the UK Government on this issue (pardoning Morant, Handcock and Witton for offenses committed during the Boer War), to date no such correspondence has been received ,” reads the British answer received last week.

Border authorities at Beit Bridge start with preparations for busy festive season The Zimbabwean and South African border border post during the festive season. Gwede, told Zoutpansberger that they had held a up the process of clearing travellers during the authorities have put in place mechanisms aimed Zimbabwe’s regional immigration manager in series of meetings with South African stakeholders Christmas holiday. at dealing with congestion at the Beit Bridge charge of Beit Bridge Border Post, Mr Charles on how they would jointly work together to speed “We have various systems in place to co-ordinate and see how best we can tackle congestion during the festive period. As border stakeholders, we have held several inter-border meetings with our South African counterparts to discuss and explore ways and strategies aimed at dealing with congestion during this period. We need to work together with the South African authorities and exchange notes, because the issue of congestion on either side has an impact on both the sides of the border,” he said. Gwede said they experienced a slight increase in the number of travellers who passed through the border last weekend, “largely because it was a month-end, when most travellers would be going for shopping. Weanticipate , however, that there will be a huge influx of travellers passing through the border post as we approach the festive season,” Gwede said. Traditionally, immigration officials at Beit Bridge Border Post handle an increased number of travellers during the festive season, most of whom will be Zimbabweans working in South Africa, flocking back into their country to spend Christmas with their families at home. “Other nationals, such as Zambians and Malawians, also use the Beit Bridge Border Post, resulting in pressure on our personnel. Therefore, we are working on various strategies to ensure that we speed up the clearance of travellers. We will categorise travellers and create more counters to enhance the clearance process,” he said. Gwede added that they would suspend leave and off-days for their staff in the run-up to the festive season. “As part of our decongestion drive, we will rearrange our shifts to maximize manpower between 22 and 25 December, when we anticipate that there will be a huge influx of travellers. We will further dissolve the shift from three to two, to ensure that we have more officers per shift. That will effectively manage the queue and speed up the clearance process,” he said. Gwede said they were expecting more officers from other stations to beef up the local staff complement and ensure that all check points and counters were adequately manned. “We continue to urge other stakeholders to complement our efforts to ensure the smooth passage of travellers during the festive period. We will also tighten security at the border to deter touts and bogus clearing agents from accessing the border area. We have put a fence around the border area to enhance security and there are access-controlled gates manned for 24 hours by police,” he added. In the past, there was uncontrolled entry into the border area, resulting in touts and bogus clearing agents finding their way into the customs yard where they would swindle unsuspecting travellers (mostly foreigners) out of their money under the guise of offering assistance. Beit Bridge is the busiest inland port of entry in sub-Saharan Africa, which handles a huge volume of both human and vehicular traffic passing through every day. Commercial trucks destined for east and central African countries such as Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia, also pass through the border post.

The Makhado Municipality’s newly appointed Ambassador of Goodwill, Mr Amie Chhaya of Louis Trichardt, on Saturday received another certificate of appreciation from the Thanya Day Care centre for his continuous support of the centre.

VACANCY Although they are two separate charity organisations, Round Table 66 Zoutpansberg and Ladies Circle 4 have had a very close working relationship for many years. They have even hosted many fundraising events together, such as this year’s melodrama. It was therefore fitting that Round Table 66 Zoutpansberg paid tribute to Ladies Circle 4 during their annual induction dinner and prize-giving function on Saturday at the Gateway Inn Guesthouse in Louis Trichardt. In return, Ladies Circle 4 handed the Table a special guest register as a gift. Pictured are the chairpersons of both organisations: André Müller (left) from Round Table and Hettie Botha from Ladies Circle 4.

Mayor Luruli leads by example Leading by example in the fight against HIV/Aids, the mayor of the Makhado Municipality, Cllr Mavhungu Luruli was the first to be tested during the HIV/Aids counseling and testing campaign at the Louis Trichardt Caravan Park last Wednesday. This comes after the Makhado Municipality, in partnership with the Louis Trichardt Memorial Hospital, decided to participate with all its employees in the HIV/Aids counseling and testing campaign. Luruli said that the event came after she realised that the municipality was distributing information regarding the pandemic to the general public, "while forgetting about its

employees". She added that they decided to have an awareness campaign event focusing on the workers. "Except for those rendering essential services at the municipality, workers from other sections participated in the event," Luruli said. She encouraged all municipal workers to get tested for HIV/Aids and other diseases such as diabetes. Luruli urged the workers to take care of their health and know their status. The campaign was celebrated under the theme Zero New HIV Infections. Zero Discrimination. Zero AIDS Related Deaths. Led by the mayor, workers also engaged in a 5km walk, in an effort to improve their health.

Municipality’s lapa in Louis Trichardt. Mdaka said that their festive season’s operation team will be able to respond to any type of accident that might happen anywhere in the district during this time. “There will be several roadblocks, where cars will be searched. We advise motorists that their cars must be in good condition, or else they will be arrested. We will be very strict on drinking and driving and the SAPS will be there to arrest offenders.” He further warned pedestrians to wear light clothes at night which can be seen by drivers “because most accidents happen to pedestrians”. Mdaka said that alcohol drinkers were also warned to stay indoors. “All motorists are advised to carry their licenses wherever they go. We have established operational centres at various locations in our district. The centres will operate on a 24-hour basis until 12 January 2012,” he continued. According to him, the operation has already started and operational centres were established at the fourway stop near Makhado Crossing in Louis Trichardt, at Bokmakierie on the Louis Trichardt- Musina road, the Sasol Garage in Mutale, at Tshilidzini Nursing College and at the Shigalo Tribal Office. He appealed to members of the communities to report all accidents that might occur anywhere near them. Mdaka said motorists must be extra careful during this busiest time of the year.

Several departments in Limpopo have been placed under the administration of national ministers from Monday, which will effectively leave a number of MECs out of work. This follows the decision by the national cabinet last week to place the Limpopo Province under administration after an allegation that the province was on the verge of collapse, due to its inability to fulfill its financial obligations. The Limpopo departments affected are the Treasury, Roads and Transport, Health and Social Development, Public Works and Education. A statement released by government spokesperson Jimmy Manyi last Monday (5 December) confirmed that the Limpopo provincial government has approached Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan to request an approval of additional overdraft facility. He said the request was made on 23 November, wherein the Limpopo government indicated they had used up their R757,3 million overdraft facility with the Corporations for Public

Deposits of the SA Reserve Bank, which facilitates banking arrangements for national and provincial departments, including state-owned entities. Manyi said Limpopo had requested that its facility should be increased by R1 billion to R1, 7 billion. “After carefully assessing the situation in Limpopo, a decision has been taken that members of the national executive will assume responsibilities for the provincial departments of treasury, education, roads and transport, health and social development and public works,” reads the statement. The South African Communist Party (SACP) in Limpopo strongly welcomed the executive cabinet’s decision to place Limpopo Provincial Administration under administration and that it will be overseen by the national executive. Limpopo Premier Mr Cassel Mathale said his provincial government would work harmoniously with the national executive until the process was finalised. According to the Polokwane Observer, a weekly newspaper

in Polokwane, the provincial secretary of Cosatu, Mr Dan Sebabi, commended the cabinet decision and said the union’s march four days before the ruling party’s provincial conference would call for Premier Cassel Mathale, among others, to step down immediately. The Observer also quoted Democratic Alliance (DA) Provincial Leader, Desiree van der Walt, who said that the party would request the Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) to take action against the heads of department and chief financial officers of the affected departments. In the report by the Observer, the provincial head of the the African Christian Democratic Party’s (ACDP), Modiba Sedibane, said he would have preferred the entire provincial government to be put under administration and not just the five departments. Congress of the People’s provincial chairperson Solly Mkhatshwa also said the party wanted the entire provincial government to be put under administration as well as some of the municipalities.

Nadat inwoners van Groningen woonstelle in Bredastraat sedert Desember 2010 gesukkel het met ‘n groot waterlekkasie by die hek, geniet hulle vir die afgelope sowat vier maande ‘n netjiesherstelde rypad. Volgens mnr. Willem Grobbelaar, wat deur die Makhado Munisipaliteit gevra is om die herstelwerk te doen, kon die pype wat daar was nie die binne-druk van die water en die buite-druk van baie voertuie hanteer nie en die klampe was ook te groot. Die regte toerusting is gebruik en sedertdien is die inwoners se probleme op ‘n einde.

In CVO-skool ken kinders hul Bybel

D

ie president van die Rapportryersvereniging mnr. Ruurd van der Wal sê dat “Afrikaners hul kinders en geloof gefaal het.” Met hierdie veralgemening kan ek nie heeltemal saamstem nie. Daar is nog hoop ... Dieselfde vraestel wat in die Zoutpansberger van 25 November verskyn het en wat deur altesaam 4282 hoërskoolleerlinge landswyd geskryf is en waarin hul so klaaglik gevaar het, is deur ons Graad 3-klas by die CVO geskryf. Hulle gemiddeld was egter 67% en u is welkom om daarna te kyk. Waarom is ons laerskooleerlinge daartoe instaat, sou u vra? Buiten dat Afrikaans ‘n slaagvereiste is, is Bybelonderrig ook. Indien jy dus Bybel nie slaag nie, herhaal jy jou graad! Dit is hoe belangrik Bybelonderrig geag word. Behalwe Maandae se saalopening, waar ‘n ernstige godsdiensboodskap gebring word, is daar ook vier Bybelonderrigperiodes per week in CVO-skole, volgens die vaste leerplan van elke graad. Daar word Bybelvasvraes in ouderdoms-

groepe gehou, waarop leerlinge eers op streeksvlak en later landwyd in kan meeding. Bybelprojekte is opsioneel, maar leerlinge word beoordeel met intensiewe vrae deur predikante van ons dorp. Met individuele aandag in ‘n klas, van byvoorbeeld 12 leerlinge, vind vrugbare groepbesprekings plaas in Bybelonderrig. Leerlinge kry die geleentheid om moreel te ontwikkel en die vaslegging daarvan kan ook so plaasvind. Meeste inligting vir genoemde vraestelletjie was kennis wat in hul sillabus behandel was. Indien die Rapportryers “die verval van moraliteit” wil keer, sal sorgvuldige Bybelonderrig dalk help. Dan het ons die geleentheid om ‘n positiewe invloed op ‘n kind se gemoed te hê. Soos u weet, sal dit egter bars gaan om die regering daarvan te oortuig ... Die voorneme is prysenswaardig goed. Ouers kan maar gaan nadink oor hierdie saak. Waar is dit goed en wat is goed vir jou kind se vorming? - Christa Lourens (Louis Trichardt) dit is winter ...- Lettie Du Preez Slater

Brief

Belastingbetalers baie teleurgesteld in berig oor die afsny van dienste

O

ns as belastingbetalersvereniging is teleurgesteld met die voorbladberig van die Zoutpansberger van hierdie week (09/12) se bewoording en uitdaging om 550 belastingbetalers se krag en water af te sny. Ons lede is almal betalers, in teenstelling met die nie-betalers in gebiede soos Vleifontein, Dzanani, Waterval ensovoorts, waar dit blyk dat byvoorbeeld geen erfbelasting in daardie dorpe gehef word nie, slegs in Louis Trichardt! Daar is uitstaande skuld van R194 miljoen waarvan ons trustgeld van R4 miljoen ‘n druppel in die emmer is. Ons is natuurlik teleurgesteld met die uitspraak, maar ook dankbaar dat die Nasionale Belastingbetalersunie aansoek doen tot verlof tot appèl. Indien die appèlsaak kan voortgaan, skort dit die uitspraak op, en moet daar gewag word vir regsekerheid wat deur die Konstitusionele Hof gegee sal word. Ons glo dat die Konstitusionele Hof sal insien dat die toenemende diensverskaffingsbetogings, swakker dienslewering en die uitlewering van die publiek aan die nie-kompeterende sisteem ongesond is, en die munisipale wette wat dit duidelik stel dat die publiek se deelname, insette en opinie geag en waardevol is, sal uitlig en ‘n meer regverdige uitspraak sal lewer. Ons wil ook graag ‘n bestel hê waar munisipaliteite verantwoordbaar en kompeterend is soos enige ander besigheid. Al die munisipale wetgewings word deurspek met vereistes van publieke deelnames, konsultasies en verantwoordbaarheid. Mens vertrou dat die Konstitusionele Hof hierdie aspekte deegliker sal oorweeg. Ons wil dus al ons huidige en voornemende lede gerusstel dat

hierdie saak hoë prioriteit aandag geniet. Intussen word ‘n spesiale vergadering beplan vir Donderdag, 19 Januarie 2012 en die vergadering sal deur mnr. Jaap Kelder toegespreek word. Veral in die lig daarvan dat ons toenemende druk ondervind van die munisipaliteit se kant af om ons trustgeld aan hul oor te betaal, vra ons dat almal hierdie datum sal oophou om te kom luister en ook opinie te gee rakende die vordering wat die munisipaliteit rondom dienslewering, hul aksieplanne en teikendatums daarvan maak. - Inga Gilfillan (Voorsitter: Soutpansberg Belastingbetalers Vereniging) As mede-inwoners is die koerant, en by implikasie sy personeel, deel van die gemeenskap en ervaar hulle dieselfde frustrasie as dit kom by gebrekkige dienslewering. Daar is dus begrip vir die groot taak wat belastingbetalersverenigings hulself op die skouers gelê het in hul stryd om beter dienslewering te bewerkstellig. Om teleurstelling met die Zoutpansberger uit te spreek oor verlede week se voorblad berig, is egter nie geregverdig nie. Die Zoutpansberger het nie die beslissing in die Appèlhof gevel nie, maar bloot daaroor geskryf. Die saak het direk betrekking op die Soutpansberg Belastingbetalersvereniging se dispuut met die Makhado Munisipaliteit en derhalwe die besluit om daaroor te skryf. Die Zoutpansberger het ook geen uitdaging gerig nie, want ingevolge die uitspraak kan munisipaliteite juis dit doen – belastingbetalers se dienste afsny as hulle uitstaande is op hul munisipale rekenings. - Red

The Way, the Truth and the Life

Knowing heart rest when bewildered by God’s inscrutable ways: “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart.” - Psalm 73:26

T

he late German pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote: “But just as the capacity to forget is a gift of grace, so memory, the recalling of the lessons we have learnt, is an essential element in responsible living.” We will look at some lessons to be learned about the importance of trusting the essential goodness of God. Have you ever wrestled deeply with the mysterious ways of providence or questioned why God did not respond to your urgent, heart-felt prayer within a certain time frame? Be encouraged, you are not alone. Are you increasingly dismayed by what seems to be the Lord’s unexplained purpose for not intervening in your nightmare. Take heart, slowly, step by step, you will come to realise that you cannot continue living under the selfimposed pall of despair and excessive grief that had enveloped your emotions. Beginning a journey out from the dark lands of disillusionment with God’s mysterious ways is not necessarily an onerous process, but neither is it achieved overnight. However, the Lord does graciously direct us in the process. This realization opens our eyes to refocus our mental energies on the vital lessons once learned to be true in the past about God’s integrity of heart. God brings us to a place of genuine heart-rest typified by “the garment of praise, instead of a spirit of despair.” (Isaiah 61:3) - 079 5168303

By Frans van der Merwe

“Was it not for him, I would be dead” After a life-threatening ordeal on the Thohoyandou road last Saturday morning, a Louis Trichardt resident, Ms Marika du Preez, is eager to make contact with the people who came to her rescue when her car caught fire on the way to Levubu. “I have thanked the Lord over and over again for sending these people at the right time to save my life. I would really want to thank them personally for the capable and diligent assistance and the compassionate way in which they reacted to me in my desperate plight,” says Du Preez. This week, obviously still deeply moved, Du Preez, who has severe health problems, related how her trip to Levubu came to an abrupt end when smoke suddenly started billowing from the engine. She stopped beside the very busy road, shocked and unable to move. “A man who was driving a lorry with a cargo of

vegetables and who was right behind me when the trouble started, immediately stopped and rushed to my window. He told me to open the window and then to open the bonnet of the car,” Du Preez said. While she was still too dazed to react, the man put his arm through the window, released the bonnet latch and started putting out the fire with a fire extinguisher. “At the same time, he instructed me to get out of the vehicle and to phone my people. He called on a woman in one of the other cars which had also stopped, to bring me some water, while he took tools from his car to disconnect my car’s battery. The woman offered me water to drink. All of them acted with so much compassion, and I am really so sad that I did not even have the opportunity to find out what their names were and how I can contact them. I would like to thank them personally for their kindness. They saved my life,” said Du Preez. After ensuring that she was safe and that help was on the way, the unknown man excused himself because he had an urgent delivery to make in Thohoyandou. He assured her, however, that he would be back on his return trip. “An expert told me that this man did exactly the right things at the right time to ensure that I did not get trapped in the burning car. Were it not for his expert and timely actions, I could have been killed,” Du Preez said. After she got out of the car, she succeeded in contacting family and friends, who came to her further assistance. Du Preez expressed her profound appreciation and thanks to PC and Zarika Gird and also to everybody else who helped. She had special appreciation for Mr Gert Coetzee of Werda Motors for his professional assistance.

‘n Koeldrankblik in die rioollyn was die sondebok wat veroorsaak het dat riool vir meer as agt weke by kantore in Unikastraat in die industriële gebied uitgeloop het. Daar was ook ander plastiekhouertjies, soos hierdie houtstopverfhouertjie, wat bygedra het tot die verstopping. Deur Linda van der Westhuizen

Koeldrankblikkie al die tyd die sondebok ‘n Koeldrankblik in die riool­ lyn was die rede waarom riool vir meer as agt weke by kantore in Unikastraat in die industriële gebied van Louis Trichardt uitgeloop het. Werknemers by Specialised Oil Extraction se administratiewe kantore, waar die Pakmark gebou geleë is, moes vir maande die riooldam by hul werkplek verduur. “Sedert ek in September laasjaar hier begin werk het, het die drein maar altyd oorgeloop as dit baie gereën het, maar die laaste agt weke het die riool baie erg geloop,” sê me. Jacqueline Janse van Rensburg, boekhouer by die firma. Die eienaar van die fabriek, mnr. Dennis Gilbert, het ‘n prokureursbrief aan die Makhado Munisipaliteit gestuur. Sou die probleem nie binne die voorgeskrewe tydperk opgelos word nie, sou ‘n hofinterdik verkry word. Die probleem by Unikastraat het ‘n tweede waarskuwingsbrief geverg voordat die

situasie opgelos is. Die tweede brief het gelui dat die probleem teen Donderdag, 8 Desember, uitgesorteer moes wees om ‘n hofinterdik af te weer. Dinsdagoggend het mnr. Willem Grobbelaar en sy span, wat mnr. Rudi Meissenheimer in­ sluit, begin werk. Hulle is deur die munisipaliteit gevra om die probleem te hanteer. “Dit het ons vier ure geneem om die probleem uit te sorteer. Ons moes eers na die mangate soek. Die straat is sowat twee jaar gelede herbou. Die gruis is op die kante gegooi en het die mangate se deksels heeltemal toegemaak. Ons het sowat 50cm diep gegrawe en die deksel gekry. Ons het die rioolstaaf ingedruk en begin uitpomp. ‘n Koeldrankblik het in die pyp vasgesteek. Plastiekhouertjies het saam vasgesteek in die pyp, sodat blare en ander gemors daarteen vasgepak het,” sê Grobbelaar. Me. Aretha Smith, bestuurder van die Soutpansberg Belasting-

betalersvereniging, het bevestig dat die probleem Dinsdag uitgesorteer is. Smith het die rioolprobleem daaglikse gemonitor gedurende die afgelope paar weke. Die kantoor van Specialised Oil Extraction het hierdie week gesê dat die rioollyn oopgemaak is danksy ‘n privaatkontrakteur wat uiteindelik uitgestuur is. “Dit lyk of dit nou alles uitgesorteer is,” het me. Mandy Hugo gesê. Meissenheimer het Maandag gesê dat hulle besig is om die rioollyn in die veld naby die spoorlyn oop te kry. Hulle het ook gewerk in die gedeelte wat die agterkant van industrieë soos Madikor Abattoir en Dinnermates vorm. “Jy kan nie glo wat ‘n mens als in die rioollyne vind nie. By Unikastraat was dit die koeldrankblik en houertjie houtstopverf, asook ‘n klomp grond. Hier teen die treinspoor was dit groot, soliede massas vet,” het Meissenheimer gesê.

Well done young man ...the 16-year-old Richard Partridge from Polokwane proudly displays the 2,98kg large-mouth bass he caught at Nandoni Dam on 4 December. With the help of his dad, Richard senior, he managed to catch his five-fish bag limit before 11:00 that morning, with the bag weighing in at an astonishing 15,3kg. According to Dad Richard, the bag weight is a new record for Nandoni. Apart from his good catches on the 4th, young Richard also reeled in a huge 4.1 large-mouth during a competition the previous day. Photo supplied.
