Suspected ritual murder as
Mutilated body found
The body of Ms Mothivha Khobani (26) from Muledani is being carried away from the scene where it was found. By Elmon Tshikhudo
Above: Part of the blood that was found at the scene where the body was found.
Fear and shock have gripped the peaceful village of Maungani outside Thohoyandou. This follows the discovery of a mutilated body with body parts such as the face, eyes and the oesophagus missing. The deceased was on Tuesday identified as Ms Mothivha Khobani (26) from Muledani village. Her body was found on the road right inside
the village by a passerby in the early hours of Saturday. The person notified neighbours and within a short space of time, word had spread all over the village and surrounding areas. The body was partly dressed and seemed to have been killed somewhere else and dumped on the street next to the entrance of a yard. Close to her body was a pool of blood and little stones.
Residents who stay not far from the scene spoke in low tones and said they had heard a vehicle at around two in the morning, but had not suspected anything, thinking that they had been revellers from taverns. The latest killing adds to the ever-increasing number of people killed for ritual purposes in the province. Not long ago, the body of a man with some parts missing was found at a playground at Muledane. Recently, bodies that were found burnt at different areas in the Vhembe area were raising fears that body-parts merchants who were active around 2006 are once again on the loose. Despite the calls made by leaders, the scourge continues unabated. Questions are being raised as to who might be behind the scourge. Dr Alunamutwe Randitsheni, who has done research on ritual murders, said at the scene that it was saddening to find that, despite the campaigns conducted from time to time, the number of incidents increased. “We are doing what we can to make the community aware that body parts will in no way enhance power or bring wealth to anybody.” He added that only hard work would make people prosper. According to his research, he found out that traditional leaders, healers, politicians and business people are among those involved in these cruel killings in search of wealth and power. Thulamela Ward 22 councillor Thembani Tshitivha expressed shock about the incident. “We used to hear it from afar, not thinking that one day we will experience this first-hand. We are in shock and fear that women are targeted for abuse and killings. This should come to an end; enough is enough,” she said. - Continues on page 2

Another ritual murder? From page 1 Meanwhile, a provincial tracking team led by the Deputy Provincial Commissioner, Detective Maj-Gen Bafana Linda, together with the Crime Intelligence Unit, launched a massive manhunt for the suspects in this incident. Limpopo police commissioner General Nneke has noted the incident with shock but called on residents to remain calm and allow the police to do their own work. Limpopo police spokesperson Lt Col Moatshe Ngoepe confirmed the incident, saying the motive behind this incident was
suspected to be ritually related, but that the police were investigating. "We have not made any arrest and we are appealing to anyone who can assist in the identification of the deceased and who can assist with information about the suspects involved in this matter to come forward." He also appealed to families whose next of kin could be missing to contact the police. All information can be presented to Brig James Espach at 0825760743 or the nearest police station, or call the crime stop number 0860 010 111 or the crime line SMS 32211.

MM and municipality part ways By Andries van Zyl Makhado municipal manager, Mr Sakkie Mutshinyali, has become the third consecutive municipal manager to part ways with the municipality under controversial circumstances. Similar to the way in which former municipal managers Ms Faith Muthambi and Mr Reuben Rambado’s employment ended at the Makhado Municipality, Mutshinyali was also charged with mismanagement and corruption and subsequently suspended, only for the municipality to later reach a settlement agreement with them. Regarding Mutshinyali, the term “suspended” is used loosely as the municipality objected to the use of the word. Initial information available to the Limpopo Mirror indicated that Mutshinyali was “suspended” during a closed Special Council meeting on 27 October last year. During this meeting, newly appointed mayor Cllr Shonisani Sinyosi tabled a report containing serious allegations of misconduct against Mutshinyali. Interestingly enough, the events leading up to Mutshinyali’s “suspension” bear a remarkable resemblance to the way in which Rambado was suspended in July His suspen15 JULY 2017 2004. sion also followed the tabling of a report by the Ad Hoc committee appointed by newly appointed mayor, Cllr Rhulani Nkuzana, as part of his 100 Days Plan to investigate allegations of nepotism and corruption. The Zoutpansberger reported on Mutshinyali’s “suspension” but soon afterwards the municipality objected to the use of the word “suspended” indicating that Mutshinyali was merely placed on special leave pending the outcome of the disciplinary proceedings against him. The municipality stated that Mutshinyali was given seven days’ notice of their intention to suspend him, during which time Mutshinyali should have given reason why they should not suspend

him. The long and the short of the matter is that nothing happened and Mutshinyali’s “special leave” was merely extended indefinitely. This all changed on 31 May this year when Council, during a special meeting, resolved that the municipality part ways with Mutshinyali by means of a settlement agreement. This agreement was this week confirmed by municipal spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi. “The acting municipal manager was authorised by Council to conclude a final deed of settlement subject to certain conditions,” said Bobodi. He, however, did not want to disclose the settlement amount, how it was calculated and what the terms of the settlement entailed, stating that it is confidential. The Limpopo Mirror, however, did a bit of digging and found that the settlement amount totals R1 389 571.20 (excluding VAT) calculated as, all excluding VAT, (a) leave days estimated at R189 475.68; (b) performance bonus estimated at R83 832.18; (c) six months’ salary estimated at R822 393.72; and (d) the remaining contract period of two months and three days estimated at R293 869.71 as of the day the resolution was taken. As for the terms, the resolution states that the disciplinary hearing
against the municipal manager must be discontinued with immediate effect and that both parties undertake not to institute civil litigation against each other on the matters that are subject to the disciplinary hearing. Again, the terms are very similar to the “severance package” Rambado was offered in October 2004. The municipality offered him R836 400 in terms of his employment contract as full and final settlement, in exchange for Rambado’s resignation. The municipality also offered to withdraw all charges against Rambado. In both Rambado and Muthambi’s cases, the controversial way in which they left the municipality did not at all seem to influence their political careers. Until recently, Muthambi was Minister of Communication until President Jacob Zuma appointed her as Minister of Public Service and Administration. Rambado was recently appointed as the new municipal manager of the Vhembe District Municipality. With regard to the current status quo, Bobodi indicated that Mutshinyali had already resigned effective 1 June this year. He stated that Mr Johannes Kanwendo will continue as acting municipal manager until a new municipal manager is appointed. “The post has already been advertised,” said Bobodi.

“Stop the tribalism madness” By Elmon Tshikhudo
one; there is no Venda, Tsonga or Pedi, but one nation. We are all Africans and we should work as one for development,” added Nkovani. He said he was very impressed by the efforts of Chief Livhuwani Matsila, who had gone all out to bring development in his area. “We have seen and learnt a lot and our meeting has been very fruitful and there is a project in the pipeline - details of which will be made known in due course.” The host, Chief Livhuwani Matsila, said they had a very fruitful session. “We have a lot in common with Penny Penny. He loves development, which we are doing here and we together realised that there could not be development when people are divided along tribal lines.” Matsila added that they were investigating opportunities to heal relations. “We will from time to time identify a traditional leader and we will visit and spend a day discussing issues of development and social cohesion. As part of our programme, we will host traditional dance competitions, hopefully in partnership in partnership with Munghana Lonene FM and Phalaphala FM,” he added.
The scourge of tribalism that is reportedly tearing communities apart, came under fire when well-known musician Eric Nkovani called it worse than the Ebola and Aids virus. During a courtesy visit to the Matsila Royal palace at Matsila at the weekend, the musician, better known as Penny Penny, said that he was saddened to see “the demon of tribalism raising its ugly head again.” Nkovani’s visit comes against the backdrop of polarised relations between communities of Vuwani and Malamulele, following the municipal demarcation issue in the area that has torn communities apart. “We are here to see for ourselves. We have heard of the good work Chief Matsila is doing for his community. We also know that he is leading a mixed community living in harmony and peace.” He said that members of the community were worried that there were people “who are dividing us like it happened in the apartheid era. This time around it is worse with the emergence of individuals who are pursuing their business and political ambitions, who are hell-bent on dividing people along tribal lines.” He further indicated that the people are being used “by the selfish individuals who have an interest in the political setting because of the new municipal boundaries. Our meeting was not in vain here. Talking serious business - musician Penny Penny (left) and his host, This is also a way Chief Livhuwani Matsila, at one of the projects at Matsila. to show that we are

case. People with knives and guns are dangerous to the public and could kill innocent people. Committing cases of this nature gives the court a clear indication that Mabaya is a criminal and dangerous to the society,” said prosecutor Makhera. When passing judgement, Magistrate Hanlie Kellerman said raping a woman was disgraceful and communities were sick and tired of women and child abuse, so they must be protected. The spokesperson for the police, Col Moatshe Ngoepe, praised the justice system, saying the sanctions would serve as a deterrent to criminals-to-be.
The Dzanani Regional Court sentenced a young man, Masala Mabaya (23), to life imprisonment on a charge of rape and 15 years for armed robbery a fortnight ago. Mabaya raped a 26-year-old woman on August 2015 at Thembaluvhilo. The court heard that, during the night of the incident, the accused went to the victim, who was also his neighbour. The victim was alone at home when Mabaya arrived. The court also heard that the accused pulled the victim to a nearby fowl shed, where he raped her repeatedly. He then ordered the victim not to tell the story to anybody, threatening to chop her head off, before letting her go later in the night. The accused raped the victim throughout the night. Despite the death threats, the victim decided to report the case to the police. The accused was arrested a few days after the incident. He appeared several times in the Dzanani Regional court. The case was also postponed several times in the regional court, before it was finalised last Thursday. Act 105 of 1997 considers robberies of this type as serious, said prosecutor Adv Mutsinda Rabelani Makhera. “Women must be free and the court should impose a heavy Masala Mabaya escorted from the court to a police van after he was sentenced to life imprisonment. sentence in the rape

Gogo found dead at Tshiheni By Maanda Bele Residents of Tshiheni in the Siloam area still do not know what had caused the sudden death of a 62-year-old woman whose body was found in the street on Sunday. The body of Rosina Hangwani Mugwabane Nephiphidi from Tshiheni was found in the street with her face immersed in a small stream of water. She was last seen alive when walking home with a friend on Saturday (3rd), coming from a local shebeen that sells traditional beer. When family members and neighbours started searching for her the next day, the friend showed them where she had last seen her and the gogo's body was then spotted in the street. Vusani Ratshilumela, the grandson of the deceased, said that they were still battling to cope with the loss. He was also critical of the police’s conduct and said that they had arrived at the scene, but then nothing happened. “During the week, we were waiting for an update on the case, but they did not come,” he said. Gogo Rosina was laid to rest on Saturday 10 June in Tshihene cemetery. After the funeral ceremony, the community gathered at the royal house where they organised transport to Siloam police station. Upon their arrival at the police station, they marched peacefully to the gate, but were denied access.

Centre renamed after MK soldier By Elmon Tshikhudo
was officially handed over to Thovhele Thivhulawi Makumbane and Maandangaupfana Community Association during the event. Speaking during the ceremony, Thovhele Makumbane said he was very happy that, apart from the fact that his community would benefit from the use of the facility, the name of Kone had been immortalized. “We are very excited that at long last some people thought of this fallen hero. Kone paid the ultimate price, because he had a vision that this country would one day be free. We are now enjoying the fruits of his selfless sacrifice.” Kone's sibling, Thabiso Chaka Ramela, thanked the sponsors for having thought of their brother. “We loved
our brother so much and when he was killed we couldn't give him the dignified funeral he deserved because of the restrictions imposed by the government of the day. His dignity is finally restored today, and we are very happy and grateful for what the community and especially the sponsors did for us” she said. Sponsor Vhonani Mufamadi said the centre would nurture the dreams of the youth in the village. “We still have plans for further development within this centre. Not long from now, we will be embarking on the next phase, to build a library that will nurture another of Mmbengeni's wishes - a culture of learning within the community,” he said.
The name of Mmbengeni Kone, a fallen MK combatant, who was killed by the erstwhile security police in the early eighties, was immortalised at the weekend by his community, Tshisahulu. This follows the renaming of a sport centre after him at the village. The Mmbengeni Kone Sports Complex, as it will henceforth be called, was launched during an event where a life- sized statue of him was also unveiled. A new unique artificial soccer pitch, which drains water that is processed into drinking-quality water, was also officially opened. The waste water from the process is reused for irrigation at the centre. The function, held at a community hall next to the complex, was attended by the Kone family, Thovhele Thivhulawi Makumbane, an activist himself, veterans of the struggle, among them Dr Tshenuwani Farisani, Rev Zwoitwaho Nevhutalu, and Mmbengeni's former commander, Mmbulaheni Malada, known as Dambuza. The complex, worth around R6 million so far, is an initiative of businessman Vhonani Mufamadi of the Muvoni Group of Companies, together with Sponsor Vhonani Mufamadi (front with Mr Kone, Mmbengeni's father, in wheelchair) with Dreamfields Projects the Kone family during the launch of the centre at Tshisahulu.

Doris’ case postponed By Elmon Tshikhudo
ready to take the witness stand and besides, this matter has been dragging on for a long time now. I am disappointed at the postponement,” he said. Mugwena said despite the odds he was still kicking and living life to the fullest. “I am busy completing my LLB degree through Unisa and I am happy that our first-born daughter (with Doris) is also doing her LLB at Free State University,” said Mugwena.
Limpopo businessman Mr Goddard Mugwena said the continued postponement of the fraud case against his former wife, Doris Mthembi, former employee Nelly Lekgetho and his former wife’s boyfriend, Joe Ragwala, is negatively affecting his business. Mugwena spoke immediately after the case in the Sibasa Regional Court, where the accused stand charged with 170 counts of fraud, was postponed to 26, 27 and 28 June. The trial, which was set for three days, starting from Monday, had to be postponed as the prosecutor in the matter could not be in court because he was not well. Unlike in the previous appearances, the court was empty with only the court officials, the accused and the complainant. Businessman Goddard Mugwena leaves the Sibasa “I was Regional Court on Monday.

Braille printing machine for Rivoni By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho
Members of the school, photographed with the Braillo printing machine, to the value of nearly a half a million rands.
The Rivoni School for the Blind in Elim received a major boost regarding the educating and learning process when the Transport Education Training Authority (TETA) donated a Braille printing machine for the school's use. The Braillo machine, which costs R462 000, was handed to the school during an event at Rivoni Society for the Blind on last Thursday. The CEO of TETA, Mrs Maphefo Anno-Frempong, said that giving back to the community was a calling for them. “We take it as a calling to provide services such as educational resources and opportunities for young children,” she said. She then gave an illustration on the importance of instilling a sense of hope in the people living with disabilities by using the story of Thomas Edison. “Edison was released from school with a written note after the school said that he couldn't be taught and should actually be
sent home,” she said. “The mother read the letter to herself and decided to teach her son at home instead of giving up. She believed that Edison was differently abled and not disabled.” Anno-Frempong added that TETA would make it their mandate to continue helping Rivoni School for the Blind to ensure that the pupils and educators were reaching educational goals with ease. Rivoni School for the Blind was added to the list of TETA-adopted schools and it is the only representative of schools with special needs. A capacity-building workshop for teachers formed part of the occasion to further advance TETA’s mandate of inform the teachers on transport-related careers and skills-development programmes. The deputy director for special programmes in the Limpopo premier's office, Mr Maluta Mulibana, said that the office was glad to notice that TETA believed in partnering with the government in ensuring quality education. “We still need more partnerships to augment what is available and eventually improve the quality of lives of persons with various disabilities,” Mulibana said. The Department of Education's provincial director on inclusive education, Mr Matsobane Mabote, lambasted people who have a tendency of associating special schools with inability. “That's a wrong, twisted mentality!” he said. “Every child in public school is entitled to quality education.” The school’s principal, Ms Constance Mabaso, thanked TETA and all other supporting stakeholders for lending a helping hand to the school.

“We must preserve our culture” Mbulaheni Ridovhona The Institute for Rural Development at the University of Venda and the Murongwe Enrichment Project jointly hosted the South African Heritage Ambassador, Ms Tando Songwevu, and nine students from Michigan State University at the Univen Sports Hall on Tuesday. It was part of the students’ research tour to gain knowledge of the Vhavenda and Vatsonga culture. The group also took part in a heritage symposium with the theme A peek at our rich Vatsonga
and Vhavenda heritage. Songwevu said that there was a need to keep on sharing ideas to develop best practises and techniques to preserve cultural heritage, cultural awareness and cultural understanding. “As the world develops and evolves, it is important that young scholars from Africa are aware of their African roots and issues around culture and spirituality. Let us feed the youth of today the knowledge we want them to take to the future. Let us bring back the black pride. Black people are the best assets in Africa.” Ms Hadiya Knight, a third-year BA
Music student at Michigan State University, said that she learnt a lot about clothing, culture and food. She also shared the stage with one of the local artists, Mrs Naledzani Netshirembe.” According to her, the foods are mouthwatering and the traditional costumes very different from her country. “I also enjoyed the natural landscape,” she added and said that she had bought a doll and some bracelets. One of the exhibitors, Ms Florence Muthige of Nyandano Co-operative, said that the event provided her with an opportunity to sell her products. “If I was at home, I was not going to get money.

The mood at Phalaphala FM’s studios in Thohoyandou on Sunday was that of a church conference, with pastors from across the Vhembe district and hundreds of community members attending a prayer service. King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana and Thulamela Mayor Mushoni Tshifhango, who have been very vocal against the scourge of ritual killings and other social ills, attended. Among the pastors were veterans Dr Maswole Ragimana, Bishop Peter Rabali and Dr Alunamutwe Randitsheni. The prayer service, held in a big tent at the radio station, was the brainchild of Phalaphala FM, who partnered with local pastors. It was aimed at restoring peace in the district that is overwhelmed with killings, drug abuse, kidnappings and the abuse of women and children. Phalaphala FM programme’s manager, Ms Sharon Ravele, said that they could not keep quiet while so many wrongs and bad things were happening in the area. “This is indeed a great and special day for the station and its listeners, where we come together and pray for all the ills that are happening our area. We all know that prayer is a weapon that can fight all evil forces. It is an answer to all our challenges, it is our
Project director and founder of the awards Mr Augustine Nethononda. appealed to communities to support them by buying their music. “We are very disturbed by what is happening when we find the music of artists being sold on street pavements by pirates. This should stop and we are the ones who could stop this,” he added. He further made a call for artists to come together and compose songs against ritual murders and the abuse of women and children. Prizes for all categories have been increased to R30 000 for each category. The winner of the Tshivenda song of the year will receive a whopping R50 000, which could be topped by other incentives, depending on sponsorship opportunities. Entry forms and awards rules and regulations are available online and can be downloaded by visiting www. tshima.org.za. For further information, phone the Tshima office at 060 810 3845 or email email@example.com.

We are here to pray for peace, for an end to ritual killings, drug and alcohol abuse, gambling that is tearing families apart and other societal ills.” She said that all must join hands and pray together that God intervene and the situation return to normal. Speaking during the prayer service, King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana said he was saddened by what was happening in his area. He had given an instruction to all Vho-Thovhele under him to make this an agenda point during their community meetings and urged all to join hands in identifying the market that is making the killings thrive. “There are people who know about who is involved in these crimes. We urge all to work together with the police in rooting out all involved in these crimes,” he said. Mphephu commended the station for having come up with the initiative. During the service, clergy from different churches were given slots for specific prayers. There was also a mass prayer that included masses of Phalaphala listeners.

Meanwhile, the Department of Social Development handed food parcels to at least 37 indigent families. One of the recipients, Ms Jane Tshifularo, said that she appreciated the food. “Even though some of us get social grants, that money alone is not enough to meet all the needs in the home,” she said. When asked if she had any plan or idea as to when a clinic would be built for the residents, Ramathuba said that the department had no exact date. “We don’t just come down here and build a clinic because residents have got no clinic,” she said. “Building a clinic or health centre first amounts to a long process where we do a demographic analysis where we also consult with residents. While we are still busy planning on consultations, we will accelerate the use of regular mobile clinics.”
Vhamusanda Vho-Khubana Muofhe (second from left) believes that more services will be delivered to them.

ConCourt reverses cost order against residents By Anton van Zyl The Constitutional Court softened the blow for three residents of Malamulele who complained about bad service rendered by the Vhembe District Municipality (VDM). The Limpopo High Court previously dismissed their application to force the municipality to fix a broken sewage pipe and also awarded a punitive cost order against them. The case stems from an incident that appeared to have happened in 2016. Three Malamulele residents, Sannie Tintswalo Maluleke, Sindile Chavane and Sarah Matodzi Maponyani, were apparently at their wits' end battling with a burst sewage pipeline in Section B, Malamulele.

They complained to the Thulamela Municipality (TM) on at least two occasions, where they were told that a team would be dispatched to fix the problem. This did not happen and they were left to endure what the court stated as “the noxious, foul-smelling, health-threatening mess the sewage spillage inflicted on them.” With the assistance of an NGO, Limpopo Legal Solutions, the residents then turned to the courts, hoping to obtain an interdict to force the authorities to fix the pipeline. This did not end well for them, as the High Court judge in Thohoyandou had little empathy for their attempt to use litigation to try and sort out a problem that could have been sorted out via other forums. The first problem that the applicants experienced was that they had knocked on the wrong doors to address the matter. The municipality responsible for water and sewage services in the area is the VDM. Why the TM never referred them to Vhembe is not clear. The respondents in the case were the VDM, the TM and the Minister of Environmental Affairs. VDM opposed the application and said that they had only been made aware of the problem when court papers had been served on them. They argued that, had the applicants bothered to call them, the problem could have been attended to within 48 hours. They also said that the residents had had other remedies, such as reporting the matter to the ward councillor. Acting Judge Ms Antolize Lamminga dismissed the application and found that it was inappropriate for the applicants to rush to court without first notifying VDM of the problem. She then ordered each of the applicants to pay VDM’s cost, jointly and severally, on a punitive scale as between attorney and client. The applicants then took the matter to the Constitutional Court (ConCourt), both on the merits of the case and the cost award. The application was again opposed by VDM. The ConCourt handed down judgement on 18 May 2017. The eleven judges on the bench, in a unanimous decision, found that the High Court judge had been correct to dismiss the application. “Although the applicants made a brave face of seeking to challenge that order, they had no basis for doing so,” the ConCourt found. It was again emphasized that the government and citizens should engage, if at all possible, before litigating. The question of whether the punitive cost order was justified, took a lot more consideration. The ConCourt found that the High Court had not applied the Biowatch principle. This principle, established in 2009, states that when a private party seeking to enforce constitutional rights against the State loses the case, it should not be ordered to pay the State’s cost unless the litigation was vexatious or improper. The Biowatch principle is important because a cost order “may have a chilling effect on litigants who might wish to raise constitutional issues,” the ConCourt stated. They found that there was enough reason to believe that the action of the applicants was not frivolous, vexatious or improper. The ConCourt ruled that the cost order of the High Court be set aside and that no order be made as to who should pay the legal bills. As far as the cost of bringing the application to the Constitutional Court went, the judges ruled in favour of the applicants and awarded them costs. As far as the broken sewage pipe is concerned, it was not clear whether the problem was ever sorted out. In the application to the ConCourt, the Malamulele residents stated that the sewage was still spilling over, but the Court did not regard this as central to the issues at hand.
Residents are invited to stock up on fresh produce and home-made goodies during the next farmer’s market.

Kaizer United qualified for the semifinals of the Masungulo Youth Month Soccer Challenge after beating Muwaweni Lucky Stars at Mashamba on Sunday. The two teams played to a 1-1 draw and United came out tops in the penalty shoot-out. The match was characterised by wasted chances on the part of the Stars’ strikers. Thabang Ramashia missed a shot from the edge of the box after a good pass from Cyril Nndwakhulu. Ramashia dribbled past several defenders, but hesitated too long to release and he was dispossessed. Although fans started to shout at the Stars technical staff to replace Ronald Rathabane, their pleas fell on deaf ears. The technical team, however, brought on Kingsley Masukuludza in the place of Cyril Nndwakhulu. Stars could have scored more than a dozen goals, had they managed to convert all their opportunities. They were, however, denied sure goals by United’s experienced goalkeeper, Mpho Muligwa. The half-time score was still nil-nil. United started the second half as if they were going to bury their opponents alive. Chester Murwanthi scored from a free kick after he had been Thabelo Netshiendeulu of United is in posbrought down.

Mulima hammer Stars By Kaizer Nengovhela Mulima FC were too good for Mashamba Shining Stars and brutally hammered them 4-1 in the quarterfinals of the Masungulo Youth Challenge at Mashamba on Sunday. Stars were out of touch from the onset and Mulima opened their account in the ninth minute. Bornwise Malobo scored with a beautiful shot. Stars continued to make silly mistakes within their own half. That gave Mulima ample time to invade the territory of Stars. In the 24th minute, Thabelo Tshikweta was on target after receiving a neat pass from Awelani Ravuku. The Stars pulled one back in the 34th minute. Livhuwani Tsibi beat the Stars keeper, Dakalo Mulaudzi, with a ground cutter
after a scramble within the box. Tshifhiwa Siphugu caused a stir in the 39th minute. He received a good pass from Mashudu Muliwa and shot wide from close range. At that stage, Mulima’s keeper, Faith Ratombo, was already beaten. The referee flashed the only yellow card in the game three minutes into the second half. Laymond Muleya of Mulima was reprimanded for obstructing his opponent. Stars lost shape in the middle of the park and they were severely punished for that. In the 64th minute, Mulima scored their third goal. Bornwise Malobo was on target after receiving a neat pass from Takalani Mbekwa. Stars created numerous chances late in the game and managed to convert one, their fourth goal, via Madilonga Mukwevho.

Black Leopards and Baroka in last play-off By Frank Mavhungu
Baroka’s striker, Ndivhuwo “Segere” Ravhuhali.
Black Leopards will host Baroka FC in their promotional play-off match at the Thohoyandou Stadium tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. Leopards did not have enough time to prepare for the match as they flew back from Cape Town yesterday (Thursday) morning. They played against Stellenbosch FC at the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town on Wednesday evening. The result of the match was not available at the time of our going to press. Apart from the fact that they had to beat Stellenbosch and Baroka to gain promotion to the elite league, Leopards need at least five goals in the two matches to move to the top of the minileague log. Baroka beat Leopards 2-1 in their first-round promotional play-off match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium last Wednesday. It was the first victory for Baroka against Lidoda Duvha. Leopards’ coach, Mr Jeff Losciuto, appealed to the supporters not to write the Thohoyandou side off, saying anything was still possible. He indicated that they were going to use Stellenbosch FC as their stepping stone, saying they would make sure they scored as many goals as possible against the Cape Town side to make their job easier against Baroka tomorrow. He reiterated the fact, however, that they were not going to underestimate Stellenbosch because the latter was already out of the promotion race. Leopards will pin their hopes on Mwape Musonda, Ivan Mahangwahaya and Mziwokuthula Zimu for goals, while their defenders, Jean Munganga, Marks Munyai and Lebohang Mabotja, will ensure that their danger area is always clean. On the other hand, Baroka’s strikers, Olaleng Shaku, Ndivhuwo Ravhuhali and Letladi Madubanya, are sharpened to kill.

half volley. Home Defenders increased the lead in the 24th minute when Mulaudzi dribbled past two defenders and beat the lone keeper with a ground cutter. Home Defenders were leading 3-0 when the referee, Mr Eric Munyai, blew the half-time whistle. Their third goal was registered in Cyril Mareda’s name, four minutes before the teams
adjourned for the break. Things moved from bad to worse for All Stars in the last half. They conceded a fourth goal in the 57th minute. Mulaudzi completed his hat trick, following a square pass from Cyril Mareda. All Stars missed a fortune in the 64th minute. They were awarded a penalty after Thomas Chauke was brought down within the box. Tshifhiwa Mmbooi shot wide from the spot. Thabo Mathusa scored the Defenders’ last two goals. The last two goals for Defenders were an insult to the fans of Rockers FC. Rockers were leading
the stream with a goal difference of 3 goals and when Defenders scored their fourth goal, it was impossible for them to digest. They started throwing various objects, including empty beer bottles and stones, onto the pitch. They later invaded the pitch, prompting the match officials to call the game off. The teams that will meet in the losers’ final were also decided during the league’s disciplinary committee meeting on Wednesday evening, viz.
