Altyd vriendelike Hannetjie in Mosselbaai oorlede Deur Andries van Zyl Familie en vriende is verpletter met die hart­ seer nuus van die dood van die altyd vriendelike Hannetjie Fernandes vanweë Covid-verwante komplikasies vroeg Dinsdag­oggend. Die 50-jarige Hannetjie, ‘n nooi Pretorius en boorling van Louis Trichardt, het in Desember 2020 besluit om die Soutpansberg vaarwel te roep en het saam met haar man, Henk, en twee seuns, Richardo (14) en Renaldo (10), na Mosselbaai te verhuis. Die egpaar het na dié kusdorp verhuis sodat Henk beter mediese versor­ging kan kry vir ‘n reeks operasies wat hy moet on-

dergaan. ‘n Hartseer Henk het Woensdag aan die koerant gesê dat die afgelope paar weke vir Hannetjie en hulle as familie ‘n uiters moeilike tydperk was. Nadat al vier van hulle aanvanklik positief getoets vir Covid-19, het die familie hulself vir die voorgeskrewe 10 dae geïsoleer. Veral vir Hannetjie het die positiewe diagnose as slegte nuus gekom, aangesien sy diabetes, asook asma gehad het. Hannetjie-hulle het die 10 dae isolasie voltooi. “Ons was moeg, ons was seer, ons was alles, maar ons was oukei. Daar was nie snaakse siekte en goed betrokke nie” het Henk gesê. Drie dae ná die isolasie tydperk, toe die familie veronderstel was om gesond te wees, het Hannetjie se gesondheid egter skielik verswak. “Hanna het vir my gesê sy weet nie wat fout is nie, maar sy sukkel om asem te kry,” het Henk gesê. Hy het haar dadelik na die provinsiale hospitaal op Mosselbaai geneem. Hannetjie is dadelik opgeneem. “Hulle het vir my gesê dit is maar ‘n nagevolg van die Covid. Dit beskadig jou longe. Hulle het haar toe op suurstof gesit vir ses dae,” het Henk gesê. Sondag twee weke gelede het die hospitaal vir Henk geskakel en gesê hy kan vir Hannetjie kom haal. “Hulle het vir my gesê sy is nou gesond en sy kan maar by die huis gaan aansterk. Daardie Sondagaand het ons glad nie geslaap nie. Hannetjie het gesê sy het verskriklik seer aan haar linkerkant,” het Henk gesê. Die volgende oggend vroeg is Henk en Hannetjie weer dokter toe, waar hulle meegedeel is dat dit wil voorkom asof Hannetjie se lin­kerlong platgeval het. Sy is dadelik weer in die hospitaal opgeneem, waar bepaal is dat sy net infeksie in die long gehad het. “Hulle het toe begin om

die slym uit haar long te kry, sodat hulle haar antibiotika kon gee. Op die ou einde het sy sewe dae in die hospitaal spandeer. Nou Sondag wat verby is toe bel hulle weer en sê vir my ek kan vir Hannetjie kom haal,” het Henk gesê. Hy het dadelik gery om vir Hannetjie te gaan haal. “Sy was swak en sy het verskriklik maer geword, maar sy was oukei gewees. Maandag was sy oukei, maar Dinsdagoggend drie-uur toe maak sy my wakker en sê sy kry weer nie asem nie,” het Henk gesê. Henk het dadelik besluit om Hannetjie weer hospitaal toe te jaag. “Toe ek by my agterdeur kom, het ek besef Hanna kry regtig nie asem nie. Ek het haar toe opgetel en kar toe gedra,” het Henk gesê. Hy het dadelik na die hospitaal toe begin jaag, wat ongeveer vyf kilometer weg was. Sy oudste seun het by die huis gebly om na sy boetie om te sien. “Halfpad hospitaal toe, toe word sy pap in die kar. Sy het haar bewussyn verloor. By die hospitaal het hulle haar dadelik gevat en begin met CPR. Ek kon weens Covid nie saam met haar die hospitaal ingaan nie. Hulle het vir my gesê ek moet in die kar wag. So ‘n halfuur later het hulle my kom roep. Hulle het vir my gesê hulle het gedoen wat hulle kon, maar hulle kon haar nie terugkry nie,” het Henk gesê. Henk het gevoel hy wil noem dat die provinsiale hospitaal in Mosselbaai alles in hulle vermoë gedoen het om Hannetjie te red. Hy het met groot lof gepraat van die dokters en personeel se goeie diens. Teen druktyd was geen finale begrafnisreëlings vir Hannetjie bekend nie. Sy word oorleef deur haar man en twee seuns, susters Ella en Lana, broers Albie en Frans en aangetroude familie. “Ek wil graag almal bedank vir hulle oproepe

en woorde van vertroosting in hierdie moeilike tydperk,” het Henk gesê. Hy het ook ‘n spesiale woord van dank gerig aan die persoon wat R10 000 aan hulle oorbetaal het om te help met Hannetjie se begrafnisdiens.

Familie en vriende het Maandag tydens ‘n roudiens met leedwese afskeid geneem van die 44-jarige Carel Venter van Louis Trichardt. Hy is Saterdagaand in die Louis Trichardt Gedenkhospitaal oorlede weens Covid-19. Carel is sedert 1981 ‘n inwoner van Louis Trichardt en het ook hier skool gegaan. Hy word oorleef deur sy drie kinders Nico, Carien en Mariëtte, verloofde Hettie Fourie, broer Maarten, suster Alice en familie. Foto verskaf.

“Nie net was hy ‘n goeie boer nie, maar ‘n uitstekende besigheidsman” lans te kon probeer by bly. Ek ken nie hulle name maar Des het hulle getip want hulle is met die spoed van witlig tot hier. Wat daarna vir die volgende paar dae gebeur het tot dusver kan ek nie n aan persoon dink aan wie ek dit kan toewens nie. Vandat ek daar aangekom het was ek die heletyd bewus van n ontsaglike tekort aan suurstof. Ek het so voetjievirvoetjie geskyfel as ek oor die weg moes kom. Ek dog juis ek kom na suurstof maar ek was gou ontnugter dat die suurstof gaan in maar die longe is so vol slymproppe dit maak niks. Dis n vieslike siekte die Covid Jy het suurstof tot jou beskikking maar niks kom by jou bloedstroom uit waar die organe dit nodig het nie. Ek het letterlik gehuil van asem nood en die dr sê eenvoudig dis maar die tiepe siekte. Jou longe gaatjies lê letterlik vol sluimproppe wat Muller se getuienis [sic]: verhoed dat jy enige suurstof onttrek gekry word Hallo Almal. Julle moet my maar verskoon deur asemhaling. Jy kan jou mond oopmaak net hoe ek tik. Dinsdagmiddag, 22 Junie 2021, vat wat jy wil. Jy trek jou bors dat hy bult maar niks Des my LTT privaat hospitaal toe. Alhoewel Ek het toe intussen al my eie suurstof majien gekoop gebeur nie. Elke keer as die dr my vra. Hoe voel maar ons was bekommerd want my stats was in ek dan sê ek vir hom ek is moeg. Ek het geen krag die 60 . Ek moet sê ek nie die vaagste benul gehad om eers my arms van die trollie af optetel nie. As van wat vir my sou voorlê nie. Woensdag oggend ek gedog het ek het gister nie krag gehad nie. Dan moet jy my vandag sien. Ek is moër as gister. toe skuif hulle my per ambulans na Tzaneen Wanneer ek wakker word het ek nie krag om n Mediclinic.

Ek het daaraangekom met Des te kon raak het sy en Klarinda elke dag voor en Klarinda wat agterna jaag om by die ambumy venster kom sit en my kom moed in praat. Die geselsies het verhoed dat n mens die heletyd bewus bly van n suurstof nood. Eers as dit begin huistoe gaan tyd raak dan begin jou kop weer met jou te smokkel. N kop is n baie kragtige ding. Hy laat jou net daar voel jy gaan nie vanaand hierdeur kom nie. Jy begin dan so n benoudheid in jou bors ervaar. Seker soos mense wat asma kry. Dan begin jou familie jou te bel en moed in te praat. Jy doen dan natuurlik vreeslik self ondersoek. Jy vra die Here Jesus wat is die groot sonde wat jy gedoen het dat jy so gestraf moet MAKHADO CARE GROUP IS A word. Jy dink aan alle sondes wat jy al gedoen het of net selfs waaraan jy gedink het en jy begin NON PROFIT ORGANISATION omverskoning vra. Hoe meer selfondersoek jy doen hoe meer benoud begin jy te raak want die WHICH ASSISTS WITH THE aand lê voor en die sondes is baie en jy weet nie CARE OF CANCER PATIENTS IN hoe jy genoeg suurstof in die hande gaan kry nie want alles is slegs genade uit die Vader se THE MAKHADO AREA hand. Ek kan net dink hoe voel die nie Christene wat weet daar is nie iets om na uit te sien of wat vanaand hulle asemnood gaan stop nie. Nadat CONTACT DETAILS: jy vir alles omverskoning gevra het en ander jou herhinder het aan n paar wat jy heel moontlik Dr Casper Venter: 082 857 0022 van vergeet het begin jy rustiger te raak.

Jy sit met so min krag dat Angela Brennan: 082 902 6271 jy nie n selfoonboodskap kan tik nie. Jou oë kyk (Vervolg van p.1) Sy en die egpaar se jong dogter, Klarinda, is dankbaar vir almal se ondersteuning. “Dankie aan Nico en Tanya vir julle hulp en bystand in hierdie tyd, so ook al my vriendinne en vriende wat kos, koek en blomme aangedra het. Aan Vermaas Boerdery se personeel - julle is ‘n Rotsvaste span. Die woord dankie is te klein,” het Des gesê. “Ons glo hy is gesond, asemnood- en pynvry en veilig by Jesus. Wyl ons hele gemeenskap treur, het ons die troos dat die oes wel ingebring is – Hemel toe,” het sy ma Anita gesê. Teen druktyd was finale reëlings ten opsigte van ‘n roudiens vir Muller nog nie bekend nie. Des het gesê dat sodra finale reëling getref is, familie en vriende daarvan in kennis gestel sal word.

so oormekaar dat n 3 sin whapp 5min vat want jy delete aanmekaar. So baie jammer aan die van julle. Gelukkig Des het alles gebêre. As die gemors die dag verby is is daar n lam op die spit. Wat vir my baie sleg is is jy het nie n idee wat om te verwag of wat gaan gebeur as jy stoksiel alleen daar moet lê. Jy het geen idee wat is die volgende stap of wanneer is die volgende stap na herstel nie. Jou dr het so ruimpie. Jy lyk goed, daar is mense wat slegter as jy lyk. Byt net vas dit is maar hoe hierdie siekte werk. Jy gaan nog net een oggend opstaan en dan gaan ons kan begin suurstof speen by jou. My kop op daai stadium weet jy nie eers hoe jy by die toilet gaan kan uitkom op die huidige suurstof vlakke nie. Vergeet die speen daarvan. Dan raak ek vreeslik negatief want ek weet nie eers hoe ek deur vandag gaan kom nie. Dit voel of ek enige oomblik my laaste teug asem gaan kan vat dan is dit Kanoo. Maar soos n mens telkemale in die lewe agterkom. Daar is altyd iets om voor dankbaar te wees. Daar het n 82 jarige oom in die bed in die algemene saal langs my gelê. Hy is so swak hy kan nie eers self opstaan nie. Hy kan nie self toilet loop as hy genoeg moed bymekaar geskraap het of opstaan en aan n trollie hang net om daai moeg gelêde ou rug bietjie te laat ontspan nie Sy dr het by dag 4 opdrag gegee om hom in stoel te laat sit. As ek voel wat dit vir my beteken het om te kon sit in n lekker lazyboy kan ek net dink wat dit vir hom moes beteken het. So as ek kla kla ek met die witbrood onder die arm maar ek kla eintlik net oor die suurstof nood nie die fasiliteite nie. Want ek kan as ek heel moedeloos is darem my gedagtes laat gaan deur met so n lang pyp wat ek aan die suurstof toevoer vasgemaak het rondbeweeg. Nie laat ek enigings krag het nie maar ek voorseer myself om my gedagtes van die angs van die suurstof nood af weg te neem. Dan eweskielik oorval so angs besigheid jou. Daar kom geluide by jou stembande uit waarmee jy mense kan bang maak. Dit is net agv stress en benoudheidgeluide wat uit jou stembande kom van die wat ek mee mense in die aand sal kan bang maak net agv die angs van die aand wat voorlê. Toe vra ek die dr of hy my nie n slaappil sal voorskryf want as ek 23:00 wakker word is dit ek alleen in daai bed dan wil ek letterlik die muure uit klim. Ek het begin met n halwe slaappil en toe n hele een. As ek in die aand wakker skrik dan is dit muure toe ou pappa opsoek na suurstof gelukkig van dat ek die slaappille begin gebruik het. Het ek darem nie te lank gevat om weer aan die slaap te raak nie. Met n vreeslike angs maar ek glo as ek wegraak het my bors seker begin ontspan en kon ek Asemhaal. Dis nie asof ek dan genoeg suurstof gekry het nie hoor. As ek daai oggend 4:30 wakkerskrik en die slaappil het sy job gedoen. Dan moet ek n vreeslik klom pype aan mekaar

vasmaak sodat ek met suurstof kan badkamer toe. Dit is vir no 2. Number one het jy sommer n bottel langs jou bet. Jy bewe so groot as wat jy is dat iemand nie dalk daai lang suurstof pyp per ongeluk gaan vas knyp of dat hy by die simpel laste sommer sal uitskiet. Soos wat gebeur het. Maar gelukkig op daai stadium was ek toe besig om die hele petalje aanmekaar te sit. Ek was darem nie alreeds in die badkamer nie. Hierdie suurstof maskers is ook nie juis maanskyn en rose nie. Daai droë lug het my neus binne in vol sulke 5cm rowe. So nou sukkel ek om die suurstof nog deur daai rowe in die verstopte longe te kan kry. Die rekke wat maskers vashou het my ore al bloedrooi. Daar is nou watta bo oor my ore sodat ek kan cope. En daar gebeur my nagmerrie 28/06/21. Dit was gister. Des kuier nog by my toe kom daar n nurse met n suurstof bottel aan. Ek dog sy gaan my en Des uit vat om bietjie onder die bome te gaan sit. Toe sê die nurse ek moet pak. Ek is op pad ICU toe. Dit het vir my gevoel soos n duur wat terslagting gely word. Ek kan nie n mens beskryf daai vrees nie. Hoekom nou. Ek het wel asemnood maar ek het nie vermoed ons is nou daar nie. Nou ja gepak en gegaan. Dit kan ek nou met alle eerlikheid sê. Dankie aan ons hemelse Vader. Dit was seker een van my duisende gebede wat hy verhoor het. Ek was vandag n ander mens. Waar ek nie krag het om my foon te kon vashou nie het ek die hele dag in n lazyboy gesit. Ek kon my werk op die plaas gedoen kry en ek het krag gehad om die boodskap te tik waar ek gister in die algemene saal nie eers een sin kon tik nie. So ja Prys die Here. Ek is sonder dat ek dit geweet het op n beter plek toe afterall. Ek vra almal om asb aantehou bid dat ek so spoedig moontlik by my plaas kan uitkom en dat die suurstof druk afneem. Dis volgens die dr die enigste uitkoms huistoe. My suurstof is op 60L p/minuut en my saturasie is op tussen 82 en 94. Hy moet my speen tot op 5L p/minuut, maar hy sê gelukkig die speen gaan vinniger. Daar was n vroue suster wat my vandag kom sê het covid maak soms so. Hy bou jou op vir n dag en breuk jou weer af die volgende dag. Ek het wel verlede Vrydag daai gevoel gehad . Ek het die oggend opgestaan en gaan skeer wat n vreeslike werk op sy eie is. Ek het selfs gaan stort hopelik was dit maar net n Satansdag want hoe langer die dag gevorder het hoe meer het ek papper en papper begin voel. Saterdag kon ek en wou ek nie eers uit die bed nie. Sondag was ek ook plat maar van vandag af. Glo ek daar is n draaipunt Ek glo in my hele wese ek begin nou beter voel. Ek glo en bid more voel ek beter as vandag. Julle moet saam bid dat dit asb n draaipunt was en nie n more weer plat dag nie. Ek wil nie eers daaraan dink. More voel ek nog beter …

not really fully stocked with honey yet, because it is only the beginning of the flowering season. So, to a great extent, they (the plunderers) are unsuccessful, but in the process, hives are broken, and bee swarms are lost,” said James. The destruction places a lot of pressure on beekeepers. “Not uniquely so, in the sense that the socio-economic conditions impact everybody. I think this season the avo growers saw a far higher incidence of theft than other years. Certainly, in my case, as far as my avos are concerned, I had five robberies going through a substantial security fence. So, beekeepers are

also victim to the larger problem of theft and socio-economic conditions in our country,” said James. “We’ve historically had cases where guys had just driven in, picked up our boxes [beehives] and left us with nothing. So, this is a different type of theft. I suspect that these could be people who need hives for pollination or people who want to start farming with bees and cannot get hold of bees, because bees are in short supply,” concluded James. The farms targeted appear to be mainly those scattered along the R524 road in the Levubu area.

Total destruction. Farmer Fritz Ahrens recently lost 26 beehives placed on his farm to help with pollination. This was the scene at one of the beehive sites last Tuesday. Photos supplied.

Gemeenskap waarsku dat hulle nie plundering sal duld Deur Andries van Zyl Met dele van die land wat die afgelope week in chaos gedompel is en geplunder word deur “Jacob Zuma ondersteuners wat protes aanteken teen sy tronkstraf ”, het die Soutpansberg gemeenskap soos baie ander gemeenskappe in die land ‘n sterk boodskap uitgestuur dat hulle nie hierdie wettelose gedrag sal duld nie. Sedert Zuma sy 15-maande gevangenisstraf begin uitdien het, het sporadiese voorvalle van geweld begin opvlam. Dié situasie het intussen buite beheer geëskaleer, tot so ‘n mate dat die regering Maandag die weermag moes ontplooi in dié dele van die land wat die ergste deur die onluste geraak is, naamlik Gauteng en KwaZulu-Natal. Miljarde rande se skade is deur plunde­raars aan winkelsentrums aangerig. Tientalle vragmotors is ook op die N3 uitgebrand. Dié nasionale hoofweg, wat KwaZulu-Natal met Gauteng verbind, is Dinsdag totaal vir verkeer gesluit weens die onluste. As hoofroete vir die vervoer van brandstof na Gauteng en ander dele van die land, bestaan ‘n wesenlike gevaar dat die land binnekort brandstoftekorte sal ondervind indien die geweld nie stopgesit word nie. Uit vrees dat die geweld kan oorspoel na Limpopo, het sekere winkelsentrums in Polo­kwane

Maandag hul deure vir die publiek gesluit. Nader aan die huis het die Makhado Crossing winkelsentrum ook Maandagmiddag gesluit. Volgens me. Landi van Deventer, woordvoerder vir die Masingita Groep, het hulle in gesprek ge­tree met verskeie plaaslike polisiedienste. Na aanleiding van hierdie gesprekke, het Van Deventer gesê, is besluit om vanweë die beperkte kapasiteit van wetstoepassers en sekuriteitsmagte eerder die sentrum te sluit vir die veiligheid van hulle klante, huurders en personeel. “Die veiligheid en toewyding aan ons gemeenskappe sal altyd die Masingita Groep se prioriteit bly, en ons sal altyd daarna streef om ‘n veilige en wêreldklas koop-omgewing te verseker,” het Van Deventer gesê. Terwyl Makhado Crossing weer Dinsdag oopgemaak het vir sake, het die bestuur van die Musina Mall en Great North Plaza in Musina Dinsdag besluit om eerder hulle sentrums gesluit te hou vanweë die voortslepende geweld in Gauteng en KwaZulu-Natal. Hulle het aangedui dat hulle die situasie sal monitor om te bepaal wanneer hulle weer sal opmaak. Soortgelyk aan Makhado Crossing was die veiligheid van hulle klante, huurders en personeel vir hulle prioriteit. Die moontlikheid dat die geweld ook na plaaslike dorpe kan oorspoel het verskeie veiligheidstrukture in die streek op ‘n gereed-

heidsgrondslag geplaas. Volgens mnr. Christo Snyman, hoofkoördineerder van Soutpansberg Landelike Veiligheid, werk hulle nóú saam met die polisie en is hulle saam met die polisie op bystand. Soutpansberg Landelike Veiligheid is ‘n oorkoepelende liggaam vir organisasies soos die plaas- en dorpswagte. Die sterk standpunt wat gemeenskappe in veral Durban teen die plunderaars ingeneem het deur hulle met geweld uit hulle woongebied te verdryf, het ook posgevat onder lede van die Soutpansberg gemeenskap. ‘n Veldtog is op

sosiale media begin waarvolgens inwoners ‘n boodskap aan moontlike betogers kan stuur. Die boodskap is eenvoudig: Ons sal nie deelneem aan die plundering nie en ons sal ons provinsie en dorp verdedig. Intussen het organisasies soos die Soutpansberg Dorpswag hulle lede versoek om kalm te bly. Volgens hulle verwag hulle nie dat die geweld sommer na Louis Trichardt sal oorspoel nie. Dit gesê, het hulle hul lede versoek om enige verdagte of gewelddadige optrede dadelik aan hulle en die owerhede te rapporteer.

Weens die voortslepende geweld in Gauteng en KwaZulu-Natal en die plundering van winkelsentrums deur ondersteuners van Jacob Zuma wat protes aanteken teen sy gevangenisstraf, het die eienaars van Makhado Crossing besluit om eerder Maandagmiddag te sluit vir hulle klante, huurders en personeel se veiligheid.

‘n Voorbeeld van die boodskappe wat op sosiale media versprei word waarin inwoners ‘n baie duidelike boodskap kan stuur aan moontlike plunderaars wat op die rug ry van die protesaksies teen Jacob Zuma se gevangenisstraf.

Hierdie week, 25 jaar gelede in die

Zoutpansberger

Die Zoutpansberger se voorblad van 12 Julie 1996 het 25 jaar gelede bestaan uit ‘n allegaartjie van slegte nuus, waarvan twee skietongelukke midde in die jagseisoen was. Vanaf Alldays is berig dat die polisie ‘n saak van moord ondersoek, nadat die 27-jarige mnr. Roelf Uijs deur die kop geskiet is. Uijs, wat die voorsitter van die Taxidermievereniging van Suid-Afrika en ‘n bekende jagter was, se hoed is blykbaar aangesien vir ‘n fisant. Uijs en ‘n jarelange jagmaat het op aandrang van die plaas Driehoek se eienaar, me. Sarie de Jager, rooibokke gaan skiet. Terwyl hulle in die jagveld was, het nog ‘n groep jagters (wat reeds maande vooruit bespreek het) op die plaas aangekom en is dadelik veld toe. Een van die jagters in die groep wou toe sy nuwe swaarkaliber-jaggeweer se teleskoop instel en een van die twee skote het Uijs in die kop getref waar hy teen ‘n hoekpaal gesit en rus het. In die tweede skietongeluk is ‘n gids, die 29-jarige mnr. Samuel Baloyi, op die plaas Klein Eden in die Messina-omgewing gewond. Hy was deel van ‘n jaggeselskap, toe ‘n dwaalkoeël van ‘n tweede jaggeselskap hom getref het. Die persoon wat hom geskiet het, het blykbaar ‘n rooibok op 300 m in die digte bos en grasveld probeer skiet. Behalwe vir die skietongelukke het die berig ook verskyn van die 32-jarige mnr. Paul Michael wat

selfmoord gepleeg het deur homself in die kop te skiet. Michael was ten tye van die tragiese voorval werksaam by die Alldays Hotel. In meer positiewe nuus het die Zoutpansberger van daardie week ook berig dat die lang wag vir die opgradering van die N1 tussen Louis Trichardt en die destydse Pietersburg kort daarna iets van die verlede sou wees, nadat tenders aangevra is vir die rehabilitasie van die 60 km strook pad noord van Matoks.

Win R500 with your own photo-novel Last month we launched a new competition for our creative readers. It focuses on a type of story telling that was invented in Italy in 1947, called the photo-novel.

Please support SPCA’s Jailed & Bailed couples Amidst a dramatic surge in Covid-19 cases, many local charities such as the Louis Trichardt SPCA had to rethink the way they interact with the public, especially regarding raising much-needed funds to keep their doors open. One of their more popular fundraisers is their

annual “Jailed and Bailed” event where willing candidates are “locked up” at the local kennels. Family, friends, and members of the public can then pay “bail” to get them out. This year, the Louis Trichardt SPCA will once again host this popular fundraiser, albeit in a somewhat different format. Instead of individ-

Shortage of ambulances in Musina a huge concern By Bernard Chiguvare A shortage of ambulances in Musina seems to be a matter of great concern, and residents want to know why the Limpopo Department of Health has no back-up plan in place. The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Limpopo previously highlighted the same problem. After receiving numerous reports and complaints that the emergency medical services (EMS) in Musina currently has no functioning ambulances to serve the people in the town and surrounding villages, a letter was sent to Limpopo Health MEC Ms Phophi Ramathuba to address the matter urgently.

The late Rakgadi Alucia Maphaha, fondly known as Mama Africa, died on Sunday, 4 July, at home in Nancefield, Musina. Photo supplied.

According to Risham Maharaj, the DA Limpopo’s spokesperson for health, this issue came to light after people who had called the emergency services were informed that no ambulances were available and were provided with contact details for a private ambulance service. “This situation just brings into question how many people in need of emergency medical attention have been left unattended. This is even more concerning, considering that the province is in the midst of the Covid-19 third wave,” Maharaj said. The problem caused an outcry from members of the community, following an incident where the EMS were called to take a very sick woman to hospital and the family was simply told that none of the ambulances worked. Rakgadi Alucia Maphaha lived in Nancefield and worked as a cleaner at Musina Municipality for nearly ten years. She became very sick as a result of high blood pressure. On Sunday, 4 July, her brother, Mr Stanley Maphaha, noticed that Rakgadi’s condition was deteriorating very quickly and called the EMS for an ambulance. He claims that the phone rang for five minutes before it was answered. “After realising that my sister’s condition was really bad, I called for an ambulance. When they eventually answered the call, I was told that all the ambulances are broken; they have no ambulance at Musina’s ambulance station. I did not waste further time and called a private ambulance, which arrived promptly, but my sister had already died when they got there,” Stanley said. Community members headed to Musina ambulance station on that same Sunday, and found only one working ambulance for the whole of Musina. The other three were indeed broken down. Rakgadi was fondly known in the community as Mama Africa because she loved everyone. She is survived by her two children and two grandchildren and was buried on Thursday, 8 July. The Limpopo Department of Health had not responded to a media enquiry at the time of our going to press.

Major cigarette bust at Beitbridge By Bernard Chiguvare Limpopo police commissioner Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe hailed the police last week for intercepting illegal cigarettes worth more than R3 million at the Beitbridge border post. According to provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, this bust follows a similar big bust last year when illegal cigarettes worth about R6 million were intercepted at the same

border. In a police statement, Mojapelo said that the police had received a tip-off about a bus with a trailer carrying smuggled illegal cigarettes in the vicinity of Beitbridge. The police spotted the bus and conducted a search. In the trailer, they found 239 boxes of illegal Remington Gold cigarettes and 35 loose cartons. Following the find, the bus driver and bus conductor were arrested, while a third suspect managed to evade arrest. The 32-year-old bus driver,

Mzolo Sithembiso Ephraim, and 37-year-old bus conductor Havemore Sabali appeared in the Musina Magistrate’s Court on Monday. Both appeared on charges relating to the Customs and Excise Act regarding illegal cigarettes. They were remanded in custody until 19 July for profiling and a bail application. In the meantime, the search for the third suspect continues. Hadebe thanked the public for continuously assisting the police in the fight against crime.

Ma Lulu en Tristan sal hulp waardeer Liefdadigheid Klein Tristan Malherbe het sy tweede verjaarsdag op 17 Mei hierdie jaar gevier. Vir enige kleinding op daardie ouderdom is koek en partytjie saam met ‘n paar maatjies mos nou die heel lekkerste, om nie eers te praat van die persente nie! Skaars twee weke later het die mannetjie nie te lekker gevoel nie en sy mamma, Luandri (Lulu), hom op 2 Junie na ‘n dokter in Tzaneen geneem. Die dokter het toe dadelik bloedtoetse laat doen, want sy gelaatskleur was goed nie. Op die oggend van 3 Junie is hy per ambulans na Unitas Hospitaal vervoer, waar hy opgeneem is. Nog toetse is dadelik gedoen en dit het bevestig – hy het akute leukemie. Sy behandeling het op 4 Junie begin. In die volgende maand, tot en met 1 Julie, het hy Maandae en Woensdae vinnige chemo met ‘n spuit ontvang, Vrydae lang chemo met ‘n drup, een Vrydag ‘n beenmurg toets en een Vrydag ‘n lumbale punksie. Tristan is op ‘n mediese fonds, maar omdat Luandri, wat ‘n enkelouer is, voltyds by hom is en nie kan werk nie, het die gemeenskap in Giyani, waar hulle woon, besluit om Ferreira Venter Laws en Nel Ouditeure in Tzaneen te kontak. Hulle het gehelp om ‘n trustrekening vir Tristan oop te maak wat hulle namens Luandri sal bestuur. Hierdie trust gaan help met fondse om vir hulle verblyf, mediese bybetalings, ensovoorts te betaal. Luandri en Tristan se ouma, Riana Prinsloo, moes ‘n woonstel naby aan die hospitaal kry sodat hy naby genoeg is vir die behandeling wat hy oor die volgende sewe tot agt maande moet kry. Hy is dus nou nie net in hierdie vreemde plek nie, maar sy liggaampie is seer en hy weet nie hoekom nie. Die kortisoon wat hy die afgelope

Covid’s third wave deals Vhembe a deadly blow By Kaizer Nengovhela, Bernard Chiguvare & Maanda Bele The third wave of Covid-19 infections has struck the Vhembe region, and this time around it has caused devastation. Apart from the sharp rise in the death toll, many businesses had to close and isolate the past week, or operate with a fraction of their normal staff component. The pandemic is also taking its toll on industries such as funeral businesses, where staff members not only face an increased workload, but are under severe emotional stress. The latest available figures, as supplied by the Limpopo Department of Health, indicate that Vhembe had 1 980 active Covid cases on Monday, 12 July. Most of these are in the Makhado area (918) and in Thulamela (577). In Musina, 276 active cases occurred, and in the Collins Chabane municipal area the figure stood at 214. Many believe that these figures are not realistic and that the real figures are much higher. The death toll has shown a dramatic increase the past two weeks. On 30 June, the Vhembe region reported 497 Covid-related deaths. This figure went to 563 on Monday.

Funeral businesses under pressure The impact of the pandemic can clearly be seen in the funeral industry. The chairperson of the South African Funeral Practitioners Association (SAFPA), Mr Sam Ntshauba, said that ever since the pandemic had hit South Africa, their industry had been under immense pressure. He said that they now worked twice as much as they normally would. Ntshauba said that not just the workload, but also the emotional pressure was unprecedented. He explained that bodies arrive hourly, and shifts are being doubled. Following a death, a funeral must be held within three days. “We can’t keep the bodies for two weeks, because they’d pile up. So, we need them to be going out as quickly as possible,” he explained. “Heavy demands are made, and these are felt by everyone in the business. It’s not only us who are inundated. Sometimes, when we get to a cemetery, there are not enough graves,” he said, adding that additional staff members were then required, and some were multi-tasking. A local funeral undertaker, Mr Shudu Magwabeni of MTG Funerals, also complained about the constant pressure, saying that the staff members were battling to cope with the high number of burials they had to perform daily. He reckons that the pandemic has drastically transformed the death-care industry, with staff also fearing that they might contract the virus. Magwabeni pleaded with South Africans to take the necessary precautions to reduce the number of cases in the country. “It (the virus) is very different. It is something that you have never seen before,” he said. The director of Marindi Funerals, Mr Kaizer Marindi, said that they were operating in a very stressful environment. “We are worried about the safety of our workers, because that comes first,” he said, adding that the job (of burying people) still had to be done. “Contrary to what some people may believe about the funeral industry, we are not happy when there is death. It’s a painful process. We’re not happy to say this is

our time to shine. We’re pushing that people stay at home, stay safe and let’s reduce the number of deaths. Let’s flatten the curve,” said Marindi. “It’s difficult to cope, because you are not sure if you’re going to contract it (the virus) or not. You have got families that you need to comfort. It’s very difficult to focus on your stress alone,” said Mr Rofhiwa Nedzamba of Cornerstone Funerals. He said that, prior to this pandemic, everyone had had their own role in the business, but now everyone had to assist where help was needed. “It is an emotionally taxing task of managing your own fears and consoling grieving relatives,” he said. The effect of the pandemic is not restricted to certain areas of the Vhembe District. Even in more remote areas such as parts of Nzhelele, funeral undertakers must absorb the constant pressure. Pfarelo Mathivha, who runs ISA Funeral Services, said as undertakers they faced a lot of challenges during this pandemic. “Sometimes we go to collect a body, not knowing that it is a Covid-related death,” she said. She believes this puts them even more at risk.

Vaccinations continue at steady pace The past two weeks, the queues at vaccination centres have been growing steadily. The private sector has also joined the fight, although this did not seem to happen without teething problems. At the Makhado Show Grounds, the teams started vaccinating people on 21 June. Initially, vaccination was only for people of 60 years and older, but the past week the 50-to-59-year-olds were also included in the programme. During a visit on Monday (12th), the queues were snaking past the entrance. People stood in only one queue before entering the vaccination room. As they entered the room, two queues formed - one for the 60-year-olds and above, and the other one for the 50-to-59ers. Most people adhered to the Covid protocols, observing social distancing and wearing masks. The Makhado Show Grounds’ gates close at 14:00, whereafter the people left in the queues are attended to. According to Ms Constance Raulinga. the Louis Trichardt Site Manager, the number of people visiting the site is increasing daily. She said that, in total, they had vaccinated 9 347 people at the site since it had opened. This number includes teachers. At the Clicks pharmacy in the Makhado Crossing Mall, the process ran less smoothly. The pharmacy participates in the private sector’s efforts to alleviate the burden on the government. Phoning the store to try and find how the process works did not help much, as the phone operators had no idea what was going on. Some residents opted to visit the Clicks store to try and wait in line to get vaccinated. One lady who visited the store on Monday was clearly very frustrated with the process followed and the lack of proper communication. “Clicks must really improve their services regarding the Covid-19 vaccination programme. I arrived there before 08:00, only to be attended to by 13:00,” she said. By 08:00 she was number 12 in the queue, but had to wait patiently for almost five hours to be vaccinated.

Ek is ... die Weg, die Waarheid en die Lewe

Briewe / Letters Talle behoeftige jong leerlinge kan baat vind by sulke optrede Francis van der Merwe van Louis Trichardt, skryf:

‘N

Hart en verstand wat op jongtyd reeds aan die Skepper oorhandig is, sal in meer as een wyse vir altyd bly lewe. Dié gedagte het by my pos gevat ná die nuus oor André Botha se vertrek.

Terwyl ek destyds laat hare sny het by André, het hy verskoning gevra om deur toe te stap vir ‘n Venda man wat hom by die deur ingewag het. Terug by die haarsnyery vertel André die besoeker het jare gelede as jong seun by hom in die tuin gewerk kom werk, om geld bymekaar te maak om universiteit toe te gaan. Hy wou gaan studeer as dokter. André het sy matriekuitslae gesien en besef sy punte stel hom heeltemal in staat vir die studie. André het saam met mede-sakemanne geld beskikbaar gestel vir die tuinwerker om universiteit toe te gaan. Hy het nie net geslaag nie, maar intussen buitengewone hoë bykomende studies geslaag as mediese spesialis. Sy besoek destyds aan André was om sy eertydse skool te besoek vir die opening van ‘n spesiale wetenskap­klas wat die dokter vir die skool laat bou het, volledig met alle toerusting. Talle behoeftige jong leerlinge sal baat vind by die optrede van ‘n voormalige behoeftige jong leerling wat sy dank kom betuig het vir die optrede van ‘n haarkapper wat alreeds in jongtyd sy hart en verstand aan die Skepper oorhandig het.

“… dan sal skielik na sy tempel kom die Here … naamlik die Engel van die verbond … sê die Here van die leërskare” - Maleagi 3:1.

G

od se profete van ouds was sy gesante wat sy boodskap onverskrokke en getrou aan die volk oorgedra het. Die prys wat hulle daarvoor moes betaal was somtyds verwerping, en dikwels selfs die dood. Toe Israel God se aanbod van genade en die openbaring van sy heerlikheid aanhoudend verwerp het, het God uiteindelik vir ‘n tydperk van 400 jaar ná Maleagi, sy profete onttrek. God se stem het stil geword, totdat Hy weer sy boodskapper, Johannes die Doper, gestuur het. Die uitstaande kenmerk van ‘n priester is sy offer; van ‘n koning sy septer en van ‘n profeet is dit sy boodskap. Deur Maleagi het God tevore gesê: “Kyk, Ek stuur my boodskapper wat die weg voor My uit sal baan…” Maleagi 3:1. As die grootste profeet wat ooit gebore is, was Johannes die voorsteller van Jesus aan Israel: “Daar is die Lam van God wat die sonde van die wêreld wegneem…” Johannes 1:29. Sy boodskap was dat hulle verwagte koning God se “Lam” was wat gekom het om die sonde van die wêreld weg te neem. Ook dat Jesus sy volgelinge sou doop met die Heilige Gees en met vuur (Mattheus 3:12). Johannes was net ‘n eensame stem in die woestyn. So ‘n stem verkondig ‘n skaars en seldsame boodskap wat mense se harte aangryp. Menigtes het woestyn toe gestroom, om ‘n boodskap vars en lewend uit God se hart te hoor. Christus vra nie ‘n “rooi tapyt” nie. Hy vereis net ‘n reguit pad, dan kom Hy. Krom draaie moet reguit gemaak word en skurwe plekke gelyk paaie. Mede-leraar, luister. Preek weer die Lam en sy vuurdoop. Laat ons word soos Johannes, en mense sal weer “Hosanna, vir die Seun van Dawid” begin uitroep. - Ds. Johan Marais (Louis Trichardt Baptistekerk)

ONS KOOK... Malvapoeding Deur Denise van Bergen

Suid-Afrikaners is nou maar eens groot op tradisie – vernaam wanneer dit by kos kom, en Malvapoeding vir nagereg ná ‘n Sondagmiddagete is sonder twyfel een daarvan. Amor Veldsman is ‘n Graad 11-leerder by CVO Zoutpansberg. Sy het haar eie klein onderneming, genaamd Lollie’s Lekkernye, begin en verkoop heerlike sout- en soetterte wat sy self bak. Sy sê dat daar miskien niks interessant daaraan mag wees nie, maar dat hierdie einste familie-resep tans haar beste verkoper is, “omdat dit met tonne Lollie-liefde gemaak word”. Malvapoeding is immers lekker op enige dag van die week. Bestanddele vir die poeding: 180g suiker 2 groot eiers 1 etl appelkooskonfyt 150g koekmeel 1 tl koeksoda 1 tl bakpoeier ½ tl sout 1 etl botter 1 tl wit asyn ¾ koppie melk

Bestanddele vir die sous: ¾ koppie vars room 100g botter 150g wit suiker 90ml kookwater 2 tl vanielje geursel

Sous: Smelt al die bestanddele vir die sous saam in ‘n pot op die stoof en roer goed. Sodra die poeding uit die oond kom, gooi die sous dadelik bo-oor (dis belangrik om dit te doen net soos die poeding uit die oond gehaal word en nog vuurwarm is, sodat die sous in die poeding kan intrek). Laat dit vir sowat 20 minute staan. Bedien met vla, roomys of vars room. Hierdie jong skolier/entrepreneur is 17 jaar gelede in Polokwane gebore, maar woon haar hele lewe nog op Louis Trichardt. Sy het drie jonger boeties, waarvan een haar tweeling is, maar sy sê dat sy eerste gebore is, en dit haar dus die oudste maak. Sy is verskriklik lief daarvoor om kos te maak en sê dis iets wat sy en haar ma al saam doen vandat sy ‘n klein dogtertjie is. Die Veldsman-huisgesin is glo almal lief vir die kombuis en om nuwe idees uit te probeer. Wanneer haar ma hulle wil bederf, maak sy vir hulle Malvapoeding. Want niemand, sê sy, maak lekkerder Malvapoeding as haar ma nie. “Behalwe ék nou natuurlik,” grinnik sy, en sê dat sy en haar ma nou gedurig in kompetisie is om te kyk wie s’n die lekkerste is. Amor bak amper enige tert waaraan jy kan dink, en dan nog piesangbrood, biltong souttertjies, Samoesas, en die lys gaan nog lank aan. Sy doen ook partytjieboksies - als natuurlik op bestelling. Amor wil graag ná skool verder gaan studeer, maar besluit nog of sy eerder die Regte of Aptekerswese wil aanpak. Haar passie is fisiese oefening. Dit is dán wanneer sy haarself afsluit van alles en almal en alleen in haar eie ruimte, in haar eie tyd ontspan, ontlaai en asemhaal. Hier is waar sy in haar element is.

Stomach bug hampers Casper’s hopes of a 15-day finish Cycling News Dr Casper Venter’s hopes of completing the gruelling Freedom Challenge in 15 days dwindled dramatically this week when a stomach bug kept him out of the race for two days. By Wednesday this week, this well-known Louis Trichardt adventurer, cyclist and medical doctor was trying to make up for lost time as he passed the 1 700 km mark of his journey. He started off in Pietermaritzburg on 1 July on what can easily be described as one of the toughest challenges in South Africa, if not in the world. This is a race that takes the cyclists across the icy cold mountain slopes near Lesotho, down to the Eastern Cape and eventually finishes in Wellington in the Western Cape. The route stretches across 2 150 gruelling kilometres, and cyclists ride unassisted and mostly on gravel roads and single-track sections. They need to have exceptional navigation skills, using only maps, and need to carry the essential stuff such as food for the day and clothes with them. A total of 56 riders embarked in batches from Pietermaritzburg, but thus far many of them have had to retire. According to the 13 July race report, the remaining peloton is now stretched over a shorter length, but all are engulfed in the

grips of the extreme winter weather. “Riding in extreme cold is foreign to most South Africans, and I bet all of our racers will have experienced their toughest of days on a bike recently. The combination of wind, rain, cold and difficulty can make every kilometre forward that much harder. The weather is always a lottery in this race, and even though the high altitude of the Malutis from Rhodes to Cradock is traditionally the coldest, a thick cold front in the Western Cape can instantly deliver a tougher sting in the tail that the exhausted riders have to overcome. A convenient lift to the finish is now very enticing, and the riders stay out there to earn that blanket – it’s hard to describe (you just have to do it),” the report reads As Casper neared the 1 700km mark of his journey on Wednesday, race favourite Fjord Jordaan was nearing the completion of his race with 2 115km behind him. By that time, he had already spent 13 days on the road, of which 10 in the bicycle saddle. Casper had also spent 13 days on the road, of which only six days were in the saddle. He still had a gruelling 400 kilometres plus to go by Wednesday evening. For those wishing to follow Casper’s progress, visit: https://freedomchallenge2021.maprogress. com/#.
