Phaswana urges members of the public not to look at the incident as a racist attack

Scholar stabbed By Isabel Venter

“We don’t want to create the impression that there are black people going around with scissors and stabbing everyone who is white.” These were the words of Soutpansberg-North Circuit Manager of Education Dr Sampie Phaswana in reaction to a violent stabbing incident that took place at Eric Louw High School in Musina. According to the school, the incident happened on the school grounds last Thursday, just as the school day was drawing to an end. The 16-year-old André Park had to be hospitalized when a fellow scholar pulled out a pair of scissors and stabbed him in his chest. The identity of the accused is known to the newspaper but is being withheld due to the fact that he is a minor involved in a criminal case. The 15-year-old scholar, who was charged with assault, was released into the custody of his parents and appeared in the Musina Magistrate’s Court on Monday. According to information supplied by the circuit office and the school governing body, the boys had had an argument earlier in the day. Afterwards, the boys continued the argument near the school exit. Teachers who rushed to the scene applied first

aid and rushed André to the Musina hospital, where he was stabilised. He had to receive further treatment at the Zoutpansberg Private Hospital. André’s mother, ms. Kathleen Theunissen, told the Zoutpansberger that their whole family had been extremely traumitized by the matter. According to her, the scissors missed his heart and vital arteries by centimetres. After the incident, the circuit office called on the public not to look at the matter as a racist attack. This follows reports that the circuit office received about parents of the school who are allegedly inciting scholars to rebel against the black scholars. “The principal and her management team should be given time and space to do their internal investigations,” said Phaswana. He further confirmed that the circuit office was in daily discussions with the school to ensure that the investigations remained on track. “Rules are there for everyone, and the law should take its course,” said Phaswana. In the meantime, Andrè is recovering at home after he was released from hospital on Saturday. He might also face criminal charges, depending on what further investigations might reveal. The other boy was allowed back to school after his court appearance and is, according to Phaswana, showing remorse for his actions.

Windbuksskut(s) teiken dorp se katte Dieremishandeling is weereens besig om sy aaklige kop in Louis Trichardt uit te steek. Twee bekommerde families het die Zoutpansberger genader, nadat beide se liefling troeteldiere bygekom is met ‘n windbuks. Die Olivier-gesin van Munnikstraat moet nou ‘n werpsel van vier katjies grootmaak, nadat die ma met ‘n windbuks in die been geskiet is. Volgens pa Phillip het die windbuks­koeëls soveel skade aan die been aangerig dat ‘n veearts noodgedwonge ‘n pen moes insit. “Haar

agterbeen was vergruis,” het Phillip gesê. Twee dae en ‘n massiewe veeartsrekening later is die makat egter dood. “Hoe verduidelik ‘n ouer aan sy kind dat sy kat nie meer daar is nie?” het ‘n ontstelde Phillip gevra. Hy het ‘n beroep gedoen op diegene wat hulle tot sulke pratyke wend om eerder van alternatiewe metodes gebruik te maak as hulle van katte op hul erwe wil ontslae raak. “Ons lewe nie in ‘n barbaarse tyd nie,” sê Phillip. Nog ‘n gesin het Phillip se gevoel rondom dié kwessie

gedeel. Die gesin se nagmerrie ondervinding het egter ‘n gelukkiger einde gehad. Yolande Venter moes haar seun, Reuben, se gemmerkat, Sokkies, inderhaas veearts toe vat nadat hulle agtergekom het die kat is in die linkerlies geskiet. “Mense moet nie diere seermaak nie; hoe sal hulle voel as die rolle omgeruil word?” Sy het eers gedink dat Sokkies met ander katte baklei het, maar nadere ondersoek het aan die lig gebring dat die koeël nog vassit. Dié is later deur ‘n veearts verwyder. Sokkies was teen druktyd nog besig Reuben Ven­t er om aan te sterk. Die saam met sy kat plaaslike polisie kon Sokkies. by navraag bevestig dat dit wel onwettig is om ‘n windbuks in ‘n publieke of woonarea af te vuur. Lt-kol. Bez Bezuidenhout, kenner van die wapenwet, het die publiek gemaan om eerder nie hul windbukse in die dorp af te vuur nie. Ingevolge die wet kan iemand, as hulle gevang word, krimineel aangekla word. As daar nog boonop bewys kan word dat ‘n persoon ‘n troe­ teldier geskiet het, kan hy ook vervolg word onder die Diere­ beskermingswet.

Els spring tydelik agt jaar vonnis vry 'n Verslae Jacques Els het vandeesweek ‘n paar benoude oomblikke beleef toe hy op die drumpel van die tronk te staan gekom het. Die 39-jarige Jan Karel Pieter Els, alombekend as Jacques, is Dinsdag tot agt jaar gevangenisstraf gevonnis in die Louis Trichardt Streekhof. Hy het op 2 Maart, ingevolge ‘n pleitooreenkoms, skuldig gepleit op klagte wat verband hou met die jag, handeldryf en besit van renosterhorings sonder die nodige permitte. Els, wat ná hierdie verskyning glo wyd verkondig het dat hy ‘n boetevonnis verwag, loop ook nou die gevaar dat die Staat op sy bates kan beslag lê. Volgens Els het hy die renosterhorings aange­ koop met die oog om dit later te verkoop as die verbod op die handel in renosterhorings gelig word. Aanvanklik het die klagte teen Els betrekking gehad op 38 renosterhorings, maar die getal is later aangepas tot 30; volgens die Streekhof is dit die meeste renosterhorings waarvoor iemand tot nog toe aangekla is. Meeste van dié horings was afkomstig van die Maremani Natuurreservaat buite Musina. Volgens Els het hy ‘n kooptransaksie met wyle mnr. Tom Fourie (51) aangegaan om die horings te koop. Die horings is van die renosters verwyder deur hulle te verdoof. Els het aangevoer dat hy en Fourie tot dié aksie oorgegaan het om die renosters op die reservaat te beskerm teen voornemende stropers. Die geoeste horings het Els by sy woning in Tabazimbi weggesluit. Intussen, het hy te kenne gegee, sou hy dan aansoek doen vir bergingspermitte asof die horings aan hom behoort het. Hierdie verweer is Dinsdag deur die hof verwerp. Landdros Pat Cloete het Els se gedrag as “laakbaar” beskryf. Hy het verder bygevoeg dat dit duidelik is vanuit Els se pleit dat seker feite verswyg word. “Els se oneerlikeheid en geknoeiery sou nooit end gekry het nie, omdat hy (soos hy in sy eie woorde erken het) beplan het om steeds met leuens en onwaarhede die owerhede om die bos te lei,” het Cloete gesê. “Dit is uiters onwaarskynlik om te glo dat Els so ‘n edel motief gehad het as om

die renosterhorings te bêre vir ‘n onbepaalde tyd en om dit dan aan ‘n oorbelaaide mark te verkoop teen ‘n onbepaalde prys.” Hy het Els 10 jaar gevangenisstraf opgelê, waar­ van twee jaar opgeskort is vir die horings wat by Fourie gekoop is. Els is ook ‘n verdere vier jaar tronkstraf opgelê weens die onwettige besit van die horings van sy eie renosters. Hierdie straf is vir vyf jaar opgeskort, op voorwaarde dat hy R1 miljoen in paaiemente van R100 000 oor 10 maande aan die Nasionale Wildlewe Misdaadreaksie-Eenheid, oftewel die Groen Skerpioene, betaal. Els het dadelik ‘n borgaansoek gebring na die uitspraak. Hy is op R300 000 borg vrygelaat, hangende ‘n aansoek om verlof tot appèl wat hy wil indien by die hof. Els sal ook weer op 2 Julie hier in die hof verskyn nadat die Staat te kenne gegee het dat die Nasionale Vervolgingsgesag se batebeslagleggings­eenheid op Els se eiendom wil beslag lê.

Vlaag inbrake steeds aan die toeneem Inbrake is steeds aan die toeneem in Louis Trichardt, wat menige inwoner laat wonder of dit die werk kan wees van ‘n georganiseerde bende. Nog ‘n gesin is verlede Vrydag by hul huis in Elandstraat deur ‘n bende gewapende rowers aangehou en beroof van derduisende rande. Die gesin wil nie geïdentifiseer word nie, uit vrees dat hulle die teiken sal word vir verdere misdaad. Dieselfde aand is ‘n sekuriteitswag voor Shefeera Timbers in Groblerstraat ook aangehou en beroof. Volgens inligting verskaf deur die polisie is die wag deur sewe gewapende mans aangehou, vasgebind en beroof van sy geld en selfoon. Saterdag het die inbrake by besighede begin. Die NTK/Landmark-winkel in Unikastraat het vir die tweede keer in twee maande die slagoffer geword van waaghalsige diewe. In Januarie is personeel by die winkel begroet deur ‘n kluis wat oopgebreek is; hierdie keer is hulle splinternuwe kluis in stukke opgeblaas. Winkelbe­ stuurder me. Sonje Thornhill het Maandag op die oopgeblaaste kluis afgekom. Daar word vermoed dat die inbraak Saterdagnag plaasgevind het. Dieselfde aand is daar ook toegeslaan by PJ

Bestuurder me. Marette Louw (links) staan saam met die eienaar van Ocean Basket, mnr. Johan Kirsten, en kyk na die gate wat rowers in die dak gesny het om toegang tot die winkel te verkry. Die kantoor is geplunder vir die naweek se geld.

Timbers. Bestuurder mnr. Flippie Greyling vertel dat hulle aanvanklik nie onraad vermoed het nie en eers Sondag agtergekom het dat daar ingebreek is. Volgens hom het die rowers eers ‘n gat in die dak gesny van die kantoor om sodoende die alarmstelsel af te sit. Hierna het hulle ‘n gat in die muur van die kantoor gemaak en deurgeklim tot waar die kluis staan. Hulle het toe waarskynlik ‘n blaasvlam gebruik om die kluis oop te sny. Sondag, toe Flippie se pa, mnr. Flip Greyling, die kantoor oopsluit, het van die geld nog gebrand. Die rowers het met ongeveer R10 000 weggekom. “Ons is al moedeloos met die situasie. Dit is al die soveelste keer wat ons geteiken word, en ons moet net bly betaal vir nuwe sekuriteits­ stelsels,” het Flippie Maandag vertel. Personeel van Ocean Basket het dieselfde nare ervaring gehad toe hulle Maandag wou oopmaak vir besigheid en besef dat hulle ook beroof is. Volgens die eienaar, mnr. Johan Kirsten, moes die rowers kort na sluitingstyd Sondagaand toegeslaan het. Hulle het middernag gaan ondersoek instel toe die alarm in die winkel geaktiveer is. Niks het by die winkel verdag gelyk nie en hulle het die alarm wat afgegaan het toegeskryf aan ‘n kat wat voor die sensor verbygeloop het. Die volgende oggend het ‘n chaotiese kantoor die bestuurder, me Marette Louw, begroet. Die polisie is dadelik ontbied. Dit het later aan die lig gekom dat die rowers die alarm se draad geknip het nadat dit afgegaan het en toe die hele naweek se wins en ‘n paar biere gesteel. Hulle het toegang tot die winkel verkry deur drie gate in die winkel se dak te maak met ‘n blikskêr. Dit is dieselfde manier hoe daar voorverlede naweek by Nando’s in Songozwistraat ingebreek is. Sover daar vasgestel kon word, is daar nog geen arrestasies gemaak nie. Plaaslike polisiewoordvoerder kapt. Maano Sadike het wel ‘n beroep gedoen op enige iemand wat inligting mag hê om die ondersoekbeampte te skakel by tel. 082 319 9638 of 083 206 5594.

Sakemanne deur “verkeerspolisie” oorval Vyf rampokkers wat hulleself vermoedelik as verkeersbeamptes voorgedoen het, was betrokke by ‘n gewapende aanval op insittendes van ‘n voertuig in Louis Trichardt. Personeellede van ‘n sakeonderneming in Musina is verlede Vrydag by hul terugkeer in Louis Trichardt deur die gewapende rowers oorval. Die vyf personeellede, wat verbonde is aan ‘n groothandelsaak op Musina, is Vrydagnamiddag omstreeks 18:30 digby ‘n wo­ning in Elandsraat van die pad afgetrek deur vyf mense in ‘n sedanvoertuig wat soos ‘n verkeersvoertuig sy ligte geflits en ‘n blou lig vertoon het. Kort daarna is die

personeellede van hul selfone en beursies beroof, nadat hulle deur die gewapende rampokkers aangerand is. “Ek het gedink dis verkeers­ polisie toe die sedanvoertuig ons van agter injaag in Elandstraat en ons beduie om af te trek,” het die bestuurder van die bakkie (wat versoek het om nie geïdentifiseer te word nie, weens veiligheidsredes) vandeesweek in ‘n onderhoud gesê. “Die voertuig het langs my gestop en die een man wou weet waarom ek so vinnig in die dorp jaag. Ek het gesê ek het nie vinnig gery nie. Toe spring hy uit sy voertuig en kom na my venster en sê hy sal my wys hoe

vinnig ek gery het. Hy druk toe ‘n 9mm-pistool teen my nek, gryp die voertuig se sleutels, sit dit in sy sak en beveel my om doodstil te sit, voor my te kyk en “alles” uit te haal en te oorhandig. Ek het gesê ons dra nie geld by ons nie. Toe begin hy my slaan, in my gesig, op my mond en in my ribbes. Die ander rowers het die mense agter in die bakkie ook te lyf gegaan en geld geëis. Hulle het al ons beursies, ons selfone, ons lunch boxes en selfs die gymbags agter op die bakkie gevat. Nie een van hulle was gemasker nie. Hulle was in privaatklere en het weerkaatsende oorbaadjies soos die polisie s’n gedra.”

Daar is iets in die drinkwater

Die afgelope week was Louis Trichardt se drinkwater allesbehalwe glashelder, met kleurskakerings wat gewissel het van ligbruin tot pikswart. Een inwoner het amper gedog sy kan geldmaak met die “olie” wat uit haar kraan kom.

Daar is iets in die drinkwater, maar hopelik is dit nie wat die spreekwoord sê nie. Die afgelope week was Louis Trichardt se drinkwater allesbehalwe glashelder, met kleurskakerings wat gewissel het van ligbruin tot pikswart. Talle lesers het foto’s ingestuur van die modderige gemors wat uit hul krane geborrel het. “Is dit bier? Is dit Cola? Nee, dit is Makhado se kraanwater ... wel, vir die­gene wat gelukkig is om water te kry wanneer hulle die kraan oopdraai!” was Bruce Murray se kommentaar. Charl Nelson was ook nie baie gelukkig nie. “Dit is walglik om te sien waarvoor ons moet betaal en dan kan jy nie eers daarin bad nie,” skryf Nelson. Elaine de Clercq het op haar beurt gevra of inwoners van Louis Trichardt regtig tevrede kan wees met die water. “Dis ons drinkwater en dit lyk so! Ek kan amper vis teel in my bad ... regtig, ons verdien dit nie,” sê De Clercq. Gewapen met ‘n string foto’s wat duidelik die rede vir inwoners se frustrasie wys, is die Makhado Munisipaliteit vroeg Maandagoggend genader vir kommentaar. Die vrae was min en eenvoudig: Wat was die oorsaak dat die water verkleur het?; Wat is die sediment in die water?; Is dit veilig om die water te drink?; en Wat doen die owerhede om die probleem te probeer oplos? Vir bykans ‘n dag lank het munisipale woordvoerder mnr. Louis Bobodi die Zoutpansberger aan ‘n lyntjie gehou met ‘n belofte om te antwoord, net om Dinsdagmiddag die koerant te laat weet hy kan nie antwoord nie. Blykbaar is water nie meer die Makhado Munisipaliteit se verantwoordelikheid nie, maar wel die Vhembe Distriksmunisipaliteit s’n. “Hulle moet verduidelik,” het Bobodi gesê. Dit was egter gou duidelik dat daar nie maklik antwoorde gekry sal word op die Zoutpansberger se medianavraag nie. Buiten dat Bobodi wel genoem het dat hy die navraag aangestuur het na die Vhembe Dis-

Belaglike rekening ‘n fout

‘n Belaglike hoë waterrekening vanaf die Makhado Munisipaliteit het die verbuiker laat wonder hoe dit moontlik is dat hy meer as 30 jaar se water in een maand kon opgebruik het! Die Jouberts van Douthwaitstraat se gemiddelde waterrekening oor die laaste ses maande was minder as R100 per maand. Hulle het nooit meer as 19 eenhede gebruik nie. Teen ‘n tarief van 5.3 sent per eenheid, werk 19 eenhede op R100.70 uit. Op hul rekening, gedateer 17 Februarie, verskyn die gewone 19 eenhede, asook nog ‘n inskrywing van 7118 eenhede, waarvoor hulle meer as R40 000 aangeslaan is. Hulle waterverbruik is normaalweg laag, omdat hulle reënwatertenks het wat hulle vir huishoudelike doeleindes en tuinbesproeiing gebruik. Hulle het ook nie ‘n swembad wat volgemaak moet word nie. Die Jouberts het ‘n skriftelike klagte in verband met hulle hoë waterrekening Dinsdag by die munisipaliteit ingedien. By navraag het die munisipale woordvoerder, mnr. Louis Bobodi, erken dat daar op hierdie spesifieke rekening ‘n fout was wat gedurende die data-opnameproses voorgekom het. Bobodi het gesê dat dit so gou moontlik reggestel sal word. “Alle verbruikers wie se munisipale rekeninge nog nie reggestel is

nie, moet asseblief hulle gevalle aan die munisipaliteit rapporteer, sodat ons dit kan ondersoek en regstel. Ons vra ook dat verbruikers hulle klagtes by ons sal lê, voordat hulle na die media gaan. As ons in gebreke bly om hul klagtes op te los, dan kan hulle na die pers hardloop,” het Bobodi gesê. Intussen is die senior burger met ‘n elektrisiteitsrekening van oor die R77 000 en ‘n waterrekening van R7 000 waaroor op 17 Februarie berig is, se rekening nog nie uitgesorteer nie. Hierdie rekeningfoute het met die Desember-lesings gekom toe die data met die hand opgeneem moes word. Die fout was aan die diensverskaffer se kant. Dié senior burger, sowel as ‘n aantal ander persone, het hulle klagtes oor foutiewe rekeninge by die Soutpansberg Belastingbeta­ lersvereniging ingedien. SBBV bestuurder Aretha Smith het hierdie week gesê dat daar nog 30 van die rekeninge met foute op by haar is. “Van die wat by my is, is daar nog net een reggemaak, dié van mnr. Phuthu van Kockstraat,” het Smith gesê. ‘n Paar verbruikers het teenoor die Zoutpansberger genoem dat die foute met hulle lesings vir Desember reggestel is. Daar was sowat 26 000 rekeninge wat geaffekteer was.

Swiss ambassador visits Elim hospital The Swiss ambassador to South Africa, Mr Christian Meuwly, visited the Elim Hospital last Friday, to check the infrastructure of the hospital, which his government had established in South Africa more than 100 years ago. Meuwly said that there was a possibility for his government and the Limpopo government to work together to improve the health facility. "Even though there is a possibility that we can renovate the hospital, it is still too early to tell as I have to report back to Switzerland about the hospital," said Meuwly.

Nadine Booyens, oud-leerling van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt, het tydens die Potchefstroom kampus van die Noordwes Universiteit se Maart gradeplegtigheid haar graad cum laude in verbruikerswetenskap ontvang. Sy is tans besig met haar honneursjaar. Foto verskaf.

He added that he was excited to see the professionalism in the running of the hospital. He expressed his happiness about the good partnership between his government and the Limpopo government. He was visibly excited when visiting the Swiss Mission Church that is still being used at the hospital. Church services are still held by medical practitioners at the church. The Elim Hospital was first established by a Swiss missionary, Dr Georges-Louis Liengme, in 1899. Meuwly also highlighted that there was a need for the training of more doctors and nurses at the hospital. The hospital has always been well known for the good reputation of its optometry division. People from neighbouring countries like Zimbabwe and Mozambique used to visit the hospital for eye treatment. The ambassador also visited the museum, where some of the old medical instruments used by missionaries are displayed. It also relates the history of the Swiss missionaries, the AngloBoer War and the local Chief, Njhaka-Njhaka, who leased the land to the missionaries. The missionaries brought the Christian religion to the people of Njhaka-Njhaka, and churches and schools were built for the community. This was the time when Lemana College of Education was established. Meanwhile, the chairperson of the hospital board at the hospital, Mr Brighton Tlakula, expressed his appreciation to ambassador Meuwly for his visit. "We thank the Swiss missionaries for bringing religion and the church to the Tsonga-speaking people. They also built a hospital for the community. As a small community, we cannot give Switzerland the support that it has given us." Elim hospital has now been declared a national monument since it celebrated its 100th birthday. The graves of the missionaries, Anglo-boer commando members and veterans of the Second World War are found within the vicinity of the hospital and the surrounding areas. The hospital currently has 40 doctors.

Elim Hospital´s acting CEO, Ms Elbie Vosloo (left), tells the ambassador of Switzerland, Mr Christian Meuwly, the history of the Swiss Mission Church at the hospital and the important role the church is still playing at the hospital. The MEC for Health and Social Development, Ms Dikeledi Magadzi (right), looks on.

The MEC for Health and Social Development, Ms Dikeledi Magadzi, welcomes the ambassador of Switzerland during his visit to Elim Hospital last Friday.

MAKHADO CARE GROUP IS A NON PROFIT ORGANISATION WHICH ASSISTS WITH THE CARE OF CANCER PATIENTS

COLON CANCER Colon cancer is the rapid growth of abnormal cells in the large intestine and/ or rectum. This type of cancer is usually found in people over 50 years of age. It is not often detected in the early stages, making it a common cause of cancer deaths. CAUSES OF COLON CANCER: - The exact cause is not known, but most cases seem to start as polyps (small growths inside the intestine or rectum). - Colon polyps are common and do not always result in cancer. - Smoking, a high-fat diet and family history of colon cancer are risk factors. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF COLON CANCER: - Early colon cancer very rarely causes symptoms. - Abdominal pain. - Bloody or very dark stools. - A change in bowel habits. - Fatigue and weight loss are two less common and less specific symptoms. DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT: - Diagnosis is usually by doing a colonoscopy

where the Doctor can view the inside of the colon/rectum. - Tissue taken during a colonoscopy is examined by a laboratory to determine whether cancer cells are present. - Treatment is dependant on the location and stage of the cancer but usually involves surgical removal of the tumour, chemotherapy and radiation. PREVENTION - Regular screening tests e.g. occult blood test on stool samples to detect the presence of blood, barium enema, viewing by sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. - Screening tests should be done from the age of 50, but earlier if you have a family history of colon cancer. - A healthy, low-fat diet.

Finansiële druk noop sluiting van huis Trane wel in die huismoeder van Shiloh Place babahuis in Louis Trichardt se oë, terwyl sy na die laaste vier babas kyk. “Vandag (12de) kom haal hulle die tweeling en oor twee weke die ander twee. Die babahuis maak die einde van die maand toe,”sê me. Annatjie Blom. Vir die afgelope paar jaar het Shiloh Place as deurgangshuis gedien vir babas wat verlate gevind is, wees gelaat is of van aborsie gered is. Hulle is so gou moontlik uitgeplaas vir aanneming of pleegsorg. “As dit van Annatjie afgehang het, sou die babahuis nooit toegemaak het nie, maar die finansiële druk was net te groot,” sê pastoor Anton van den Berg van die AGS Charisma gemeente. Hy verduidelik verder dat Shiloh Place nooit die gemeente se babahuis was nie. “Dit val onder die uMefhi Stigting van die AGS Daar is groot hartseer omdat Shiloh Place vir Verlate Babas toemaak weens finansiële druk.

Suspected rhino poacher shot and killed by game rangers A 79-year-old suspected rhino poacher was shot dead at the Bubi Conservancy outside Beit Bridge during a shoot-out with game rangers, police have said. Local police spokesperson C/ Supt Lawrence Chinhengo said the incident occurred on Friday at around 17:00 at Taula Safari Ranch in the Bubi Conservancy, east of the border town. “The man, who was armed with an AK47 rifle and in the company of a man who is still at large, had strayed onto the Bubi conservancy when they came into close contact with game rangers who were on an anti-poaching operation in the area, resulting in an exchange of fire,” he said. The victim, identified as Motakela Mukosiku, was shot in the left collarbone and died instantly. The other suspected poacher took the rifle and managed to flee from the scene. Chinhengo said the game rangers later tried to trace the escaped suspected poacher, but failed to locate him. They then reported the matter to the police and the body was taken

to the Beit Bridge District Hospital mortuary. Chinhengo said they had recovered a satchel, which contained 38 rounds of live ammunition, a torch, an axe, a kitchen knife, gloves, a pair of pliers, the dead man’s mobile phone, his national identify card and a bottle of gun oil. Three spent cartridges were also found at the scene. Chinhengo said there were no casualties among the rangers. He said they had since launched a manhunt for the other suspect on the run. “As police we continue to warn poachers against straying into protected safari areas as they risk being killed and we believe this incident will also send a serious warning to would-be poachers,” he said. Of late, there has been an increase in the number of poaching activities in the country, with rhinos being mostly targeted. Last week, two armed poachers were shot dead and a third injured in a shoot-out with game rangers in the Mkanga Safari Area outside Beit Bridge.

Relay an opportunity to unite community “The way the CANSA Relay event unites a town is just amazing. It brings the community together in a way you can’t really explain. I never want to miss it,” says Ms Michele Pulford who is exultant to hear that Louis Trichardt will host their first CANSA Relay for Life. Pulford has attended two CANSA relay events in Mokopane and has witnessed the uniting power of the event. “It was a uniting of all cultures and races, with no political divide. The grannies were there, the moms with their prams, the teens, even paraplegics in wheelchairs.. all to support the fight against cancer and to celebrate life and give hope,” Pulford said. The challenge is on to get more than a hundred teams participating in the event which runs from 18:00 on 23 March to 06:00 on 24 March. The youth group History Makers of the Agapé Christian Centre are calling out all youth groups, young adults, churches, cell groups and groups of

Police arrest three over copper thefts The Levubu police have arrested three suspects who had allegedly been terrorising the Levubu community and the surrounding villages, stealing copper cables. The suspects, Fhatuwani Makumbani (18), Rabelani Ramuatho (19) and Israel Raphalalani (24) were arrested at the Tshakhuma fruit market last Tuesday. They were found in possession of two bags full of copper cables. All three are residents of Tshisaulu village outside Thohoyandou. The Levubu police spokesperson, W/O Solly Mukhola, said that the police had received a tip-off from members of the community about the three suspects. “Members of our highway patrol team followed the suspects, who then got onto a taxi that was coming from Thohoyandou’s direction to Tshakhuma,” he said. He added that the police followed a taxi that stopped at the Tshakhuma fruit market, where they searched it and found suspected stolen copper cables. The suspects were still on board and were arrested immediately,” he said. Mukhola said that a case of possession of stolen property (copper cables) had been opened with the police. The suspects appeared in the Vuwani Magistrate’s Court last Wednesday and the case was postponed to 28 March. The three remain in custody.

all faiths to book a stand and participate. “I am grateful that the youth is getting some fire. We challenge all churches and groups. It is for a worthy cause,” said Mr Dirk Meissenhemer, one of the organisers of the event. The funds raised will go towards CANSA Polokwane which serves a large area in Limpopo. Meissenheimer says that 29 teams have registered and paid by Monday morning this week. “We need at least a hundred teams in order for Louis Trichardt to be allowed to continue staging this event next year. There will be fun and entertainment right through the night while people are walking around the town’s rugby field. And I tell you, big men cry when the candles are lit during the Luminaria Ceremony to remember those who have fallen to cancer,” Meissenheimer said. The bags for the Luminaria Ceremony can be obtained form Heila Oosthuizen (082 677 4934) at Mount Fuji Motors.

12 16 March 2012 Deur Frans van der Merwe

Nood steeds hoog onder Zim-bejaardes

Die nuwe koshuisprefekte vir die seuns- en meisieskoshuise van Laerskool Louis Trichardt is aangewys. Hulle is, van links na regs, Jaco van der Westhuizen, Amos Managa, Thandi Tshisikhawe en Dominique Kofiwa.

Sowat 40% van die hulpbehoewende pensioenarisse en verjaagde boere in Zimbabwe wat elke ses weke voedselhulp uit Suid-Afrika ontvang van die Botha-broers se Zimbab­ we Pensioners Support Fund (ZPSF), is Afrikaanssprekend. Dit blyk uit die jongste verslag van dié geregistreerde welsynsorganisasie, wat reeds sedert 2002 deur die broers Hannes en Attie Botha van Tzaneen en Malelane bedryf word. Hulle beskou dit as hulle Christelike roeping. Kosvoorrade wat in alle dele van die land bymekaar gemaak word, word in ‘n pakhuis op Malelane verpak in kartondose wat elke ses weke met twee swaar vragmotors en ‘n sleepwa deur Louis Trichardt en Musina oor die grens gaan om in Zimbab­we versprei te word. Die gereelde togte strek elk oor sowat 6 500km, verbruik nagenoeg 2 500l diesel, kos gemiddeld R9 000 elk en lewer nood voedselvoorrade aan meer as 1 600 verwaarloosde bejaardes in alle dele van Zimbab­ we. Dié reuse en lewensbelang­

rike taak word met die hulp van net drie voltydse personeellede bedryf en is volkome afhanklik van vrywillige welwillende bydraes. Die Bothas (wat self as vragmotorbestuurders diens doen) verwelkom ook vrywilligers wat wil saamry en help met die bestuur en/of die verspreidings­ aksie in Zimbabwe. Pensioenarisse in Zimbab­we is in ‘n oorlewingstryd gedompel toe hul ruim oudagvoorsiening indertyd vernietig is deur amptelike monetêre manipulasies deur die Zimbabwiese regering. Etlike bejaarde boere wat van hul plase afgesit is deur die Zimbabwiese regering is in dieselfde posisie. Een afgetrede spoorwegamptenaar met 28 jaar diens ontvang ‘n pensioen van 40 Amerikaanse dollar per maand en woon in ‘n bediendekamer op ‘n perseel. Die Bothas se noodritte en besoeke is vir dié mense ‘n noodsaaklike reddingstou. Van die bejaardes getuig self: “Sonder hierdie hulp sou ons eenvoudig doodgaan van honger.” Die Bothas se ger-

eelde maandelikse verslae oor hul noodlenigingsritte bevat hart­roerende getuienis van die bejaardes se durf en moed te midde van ‘n oënskynlik hopelose situasie. Die aflewerings gaan gepaard met bemoedigingsbesoeke wat met groot dankbaarheid deur die bejaardes begroet word. “Toe een van ons besoeke verlede jaar vertraag is weens amptelike administratiewe rompslomp met die invoer van goedere in die land, het individuele bewoë bejaardes ons letterlik tegemoet gehardloop en dankbaar verwelkom omdat hulle kosvoorrade reeds vier dae tevore heeltemal uitgeput was,” berig die Bothas in hul oorsig oor 2011 se bedrywighede. Hulle het groot lof en dankbaarheid vir die wye steun wat van die Suid-Afrikaanse publiek ontvang word, maar vra ook voorbidding vir voortgesette insette om die aksie te kan volhou. Die ZPSF se bankbesonder­ hede is: Eerste Nasionale Bank, Malelane-tak, takkode 27 09 52 en rekeningnommer 622 390 429 06.

Hierdie groep prefekte van Laerskool Louis Trichardt se naskoolsentrum is op 12 Maart aangewys. Van links is Fazil Buys, Luchian Buys, Su-Mari Croucamp, Liné Senekal, Grant Louw en David Stoltz.

Laerskool Louis Trichardt het drie nuwe onderwysers aangestel. Van links is me.

Die 1977-matriekklas van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt het vanaf 24 tot 26 Februarie ‘n baie geslaagde reünie by die Bosveld Wegbreek naby Mookgophong gehou. Oud-leerlinge het van so ver as Port Elizabeth, Somerset-Oos en Melmoth gekom, asook die groep se hoofmeisie, wat vanaf London gekom het. Mej. Cronjé, wat steeds by die skool klasgee, was die enigste oud-onderwyser wat daar was. Foto verskaf.

nie, maar ek vra die mense ASB om meer betrokke te raak by ons dorpswag. COMMENTS / KOMMENTAAR Gaan na hul kantore en bied julle hulp aan en raak torie: “Els is nie tronkmaterimeer betrokke ... ons sit met aal nie ...” Só het Jacques Els GROOT probleme hetsy water en se advokaat, mnr. Tom Dreyer, misdaad !!!! - Lizette Lemmer ... namens sy kliënt betoog. Die 39-jarige Jan Karel Pieter Els, Ek stem! Sluit aan by die dorpalombekend as Jacques, het in die swag en saam kan ons n verskil hof in Musina verskyn op nege maak! - Antoinette Geerdts klagte wat verband hou met die onwettige besit en verkoop van 34 AVE YOUR SAY: School viorenosterhorings. lence again reared its ugly head in Limpopo last Thursday. A learner ommentaar: Sluit hom toe en from High School Eric Louw in gooi weg die sleutel! - Eldene Musina was stabbed by a fellow Anderson learner with a pair of scissors. Is it a regular occurrence and are schools Hy moes daar aan gedink het doing enough to protect learners. voor hy onskuldige diere vermoor Are these acts exposed or do schools het! - Sunelia Oelofse tend to try and keep it quiet?

Hy sal nie weet of hy tronkmateriaal is, as hy dit nog nie ge“experience” het nie. Wie weet, miskien like hy dit :) Ek is seker daai renosters was ook nie reg gewees om dood te gaan nie, maar nou ja, hulle is ook nie ‘n keuse gegee nie nê! - Maria Atterbury

S

ê jou sê: Na die Zoutpans­berger se voorbladberig verlede week oor die vlaag gewapende en gewone huisbrake in Louis Trichardt, was daar sedert Vrydag weer ‘n string inbrake. Laat weet ons wat dink julle van die huidige vlaag gewapende huisbrake en wie moontlik daarvoor verantwoordelik kan wees.

K

ommentaar: Ek glo nie ‘n mens sal gou agterkom wie daarvoor verantwoordelik kan wees

K

ommentaar: Dit sal nooit ophou nie ... Hoop die kind is okay ... - Johan Joè Stander I don’t believe schools, especially high schools, do enough to keep our children safe at school. It is their responsibility to do so, because we as parents can’t, as we aren’t on the premises. My child’s life was endangered in grade 8 and 9. I had to take steps the 1st time to try and keep her safe. The 2nd time she was effected so much that eventually I took her out of school and she doesn’t want to attend any school ever again. Who is going to take responsibilty for that? The school? The two children that endangered her life? What is going to happen to our children? - Antoinette Geerdts

Brief

Dit was eintlik laerskool wat dankie gesê het

I S

tory: Green belt area (in Louis Trichardt) earmarked for development again

C

omment: It is very true that nature conservation is very important and must be treated as such by all citizens. However, it is also true that job creation, which goes hand in hand with improvement of the quality of life of citizens, is of greater importance. We cannot expect jobless and hungry citizens to appreciate the importance of nature conservation. It is therefore important for this newspaper to inform us about the number of jobs to be created by this project. - Timmy Khethani

S

tory: South Africa has so far deported nearly 15 000 illegal Zimbabwean immigrants through the Beit Bridge border post since the government resumed the exercise last October.

C

omment: The issue of deportation is costing this country millions of rands. Why is this beautiful country of ours not putting security first. This is fruitless expenditure.Our borders, more especially Beitbridge, is a freeway (for illegal immigrants). You deport them today and tomorrow they are back. At Zimbabwe they focus on those who are having SA Rands.

S C S C

tory: (Man) In court for having sex with neighbour´s cow omment: The Question is: “Did he Condomise ???” - Muvhuso

tory: Indian businessman robbed by men in police uniforms.

omment: I think there are no laws and regulations in your country. If any robber is using police dress (to deceive people then it is like jungle law. Anyway, the people of SA have to understand now what they want in their country. - Mohaka

When the deportation truck reaches the border, the guys left behind simply returns to South Africa. There is also a syndicate of cigarettes smugglers (active on the border). Lately they are using a boat the take the cigarettes to this side of the country. I really do not know whether our freedom fighters were troubling them like this while they were in exile? I mean’t to understand they were given a place to stay, but these guys are all over the country. - Duvha Ramovha

n verlede week se uitgawe van die Zoutpansberger het ‘n brief verskyn waarin Hoërskool Louis Trichardt almal wat ‘n bydrae tot hul atletiekseisoen gelewer het, bedank. Die brief is ontvang onder die titel “Triegies sê dankie”. Dit was egter Laerskool Louis Trichardt wat die bedanking ingestuur het. Brief

Dames Ope was deur hulle moontlik gemaak

D

ie organiseerders van die jaarlikse Dames Ope by die Soutpansberg Gholfklub voorverlede naweek het hul dank uitgespreek teenoor al die borge wat die dag moontlik gemaak het. Die borge het ingesluit Pit Stop Bottle Store vir die koue verversings, Johan en Estie Dreyer vir die heerlike middagete, Pieter Senekal, Erika Meiring en tannie Hannatjie de Bruin vir al die reëlings om die dag ‘n sukses te maak. Voorkeur word gegee aan kort briewe oor plaaslike aange­leent­­hede. Die redakteur behou die reg voor om briewe te verkort. / Preference is given to short, factual letter concerning local matters. The editor reserves the right to shorten letters.

From the Dictionary: Ineptocracy (in-ept-o-cra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

MTB Racing

Die-hard cyclists take on Trans Draak Die-hard mountain bike cyclists Casper Venter and Bas Ren­n ings from Louis Tri­ chardt decided this year to take on the gruelling Trans Draak 24-hour mountainbike quest over a distance of 210km. The Trans Draak took place over the weekend of 3 March,

starting in Swinburne close to Harrismith and finishing at the ATKV Drakensville resort. The duo from Louis Trichardt competed as a two-man team in this mainly team competition and finished in an impressive overall third position, completing the race in a time of 12 hours and 36 minutes.

Rennings afterwards remarked that the off-road downhill of Van Reenens Pass was extremely difficult, as well as the climb of the Bezuidenhout Pass. This mainly consisted of a difficult 4x4 jeep track. Overall, however, Rennings described the race as very well organised with beautiful scenery.

Die Louis Trichardt Rugbyklub se eerstes het tydens Saterdag se jaarlikse Conway Rugbydag uitgedraf met hul nuwe rugbytruie en -broeke. Die klub het hul dank uitgespreek teenoor die borge wat die nuwe rugbydrag voorsien het. Van links na regs is klubkaptein AJ Janse van Rensburg saam met die borge Johan Roodtman (GM Motors), Michael van der Merwe (Dunlop Suid-Afrika) en André Venter (Nieuwco). Louis Trichardt het hul nuwe truie goed ingelyf deur MAC Musina se eerstespan 23-13 te klop.

Alhoewel Louis Trichardt 3 (Dendron) ´n opdraende stryd gehad het met die manne van Univen, wen hulle hul debuutwedstryd 14-10. Die geleentheid was die Louis Trichardt Rugbyklub se jaarlikse Conway Rugbydag die afgelope Saterdag.

Marketing for the annual Kremetart Cycle Race from 8 to 10 June has already started in all earnest. Banners promoting the event have already been put up at strategic points, such as the entrance to the Hendrik Vewoerd tunnels en route to Musina. Photo supplied. By Andries van Zyl This year’s annual Kremetart Cycle Race from 8 to 10 June promises to be the biggest ever, with PPC Cement coming on board as main sponsor and pledging to pump R1 million into the event over the next three years. The event will see a major shift back towards greater community involvement and support as one of PPC’s pre-conditions with regard to their sponsorship. This entails rather making use of local skills and products than bringing in outside help. P&L Hardware Cycling Club in Louis Trichardt will once again play host to the event, which has established itself as one of the top cycling races in South

Africa over the years. The popularity of the race is already evident, with a record number of entries received within the first five days since online entries opened at the beginning of March. These entries annually include some of the top names and cycling teams in the country. Due to the race’s popularity, the organisers have opted to limit this year’s entries to 1 200. PPC’s sponsorship has enabled the organisers to dramatically increase the prize money for category winners in not only the 175km stage race, the 70km and 10km races on the Saturday, but also the 50km, 30km and 10km mountain bike races on the Sunday. The mountain bike races are a relatively new addition to the Kremetart and are also growing annually

in popularity. This is evident from the feedback from cyclists. “The Kremetart in particular is a great event, as you can go for the weekend and get some racing miles in with the 175km road race on the Saturday and the mountain bike race on the Sunday. The mountain race was interesting, and had some hard climbs. The descent is fast and there are a few places where you can test your skills with some single-track and fast jeep-track downhills. It is a well-marked route and definitely an event for the whole family,” commented Nico Bell, winner of the 2010 Kremetart 40km mountainbike race. (Contd on P17)
