Graveyard shock By Elmon Tshikhudo

17 Unknown bodies “dumped” at Waterval cemetery

Farmer Baldwin Maboko stands next to the place where the 17 unknown bodies were buried.

Death is treated with the utmost respect in the African culture and the dead should be given a decent sendoff. The opposite proved to be the case with 17 unknown people who were buried as paupers, allegedly by the Makhado Municipality and the staff from Elim hospital. The bodies were apparently just dumped at a secluded steep slope in part of the Waterval cemetery, far away from the other graves. The burial, which has left tongues wagging, took place a fortnight ago and was witnessed by herdsmen, who were looking after livestock in bushes near there. According to information at this newspaper’s disposal, the bodies are believed to be mostly foreigners.

Farm owner Ms Pauline Maboko, who says the smell adversely affects her business. She is appealing to the government to do its homework and to rectify its mistakes.

The bodies arrived at around 16:00 in two open trucks, allegedly belonging to the Makhado Local Municipality. The witnesses said many of those who came to bury the dead were women and a few men, who did their burial in a huff. “We were busy looking for our livestock at our farm that is adjacent to the cemetery when we were overwhelmed by a heavy smell, which we thought was that of a cow that could have died in the bushes. As we got closer to the cemetery, the smell became very intoxicating, but there was no carcass. We only found out that the smell emanated from the graves that were at the corner of our farm. The graves were partly closed and looked very shallow,” said Mr Baldwin Maboko, whose family owns a farm near the new cemetery. - Continues on p2

“Forget family planning and focus on studies”

Bodies “dumped” at graveyard From page 1 Maboko further indicated that it became evident that something had not been done well and they were on the receiving end because they could not even breathe as a result of the disgusting odour. He added that they started avoiding the part closest to the cemetery but could not avoid it completely as livestock would go there in search of grazing. According to him, the bad smell is making life very difficult for them and they cannot perform their duties well and fear that they will soon get sick if nothing is done to rectify the mistake. Mr Lucas Maszive, who witnessed the burial, described it as very inhumane. “I have never seen anything like this in my life. Firstly, the dead were brought in two open trucks and were offloaded in a very inhumane way into the graves, with some of the graves containing two coffins. The graves were not even marked and did not have numbers on them. The graves were on a steep slope and were all covered with loose soil that will be washed away when the rain comes.” He added that he was very disappointed, “even if it is foreigners being buried, they deserve dignity as they are also human beings”. He echoed the same sentiment that the bad smell would ultimately make them sick if the graves were not covered properly. The owner of the farm next to the cemetery, Ms Pauline Mabogo, said the burial of the 17 people had inconvenienced her a great deal. “We have seen people being dumped in a mass grave like in war situations. No matter where they come from, the dead deserve respect. We are so disappointed to hear that this was done by our own people who know our culture very

well.” She added that she was worried that her employees no longer wanted to work next to the cemetery because of the bad smell. “They have been complaining for the whole of last week and I fear that they will get sick at any given time if the municipality and the hospital do not do their homework well and rectify their mistake,” she said. Asked to comment about the burial, Makhado municipality spokesperson Louis Bobodi said that the municipality had buried the dead according to approved standard specifications. “There is nothing unbecoming here and the marking of graves would be done by the hospital,” he said. According to residents of the Thulamela Municipality, the situation at the Mbaleni graveyard that is used by the Thulamela Municipality to bury unknown people leaves much to be desired. Most of the graves are unmarked, some are sinking, while the rest could not be identified because of the dense bushes there. Residents are also complaining that the graveyard has become a safe haven for criminals who run to the bushes and hide there after stealing from the community. Asked about the state of the graveyard at Mbaleni, Thulamela Mayor Mushoni Tshifhango said the last time they had a burial there last year, the gravesite was clean. “We have personnel tasked with the clearing of the gravesite and maybe it is because of the heavy rains that there are bushes. The unmarked graves are because of the hospitals we work with being unable to identify the deceased. I am going to make a follow-up and see how we can remedy the situation,” he said.

By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho The two schools in Magau village, Sinugani Secondary and Magau Primary, received words of wisdom from the manager of the Madombidzha Clinic, Ms Maria Munonde.

The manager of the Madombidzha Clinic, Ms Maria Munonde, addresses pupils on the issue of teenage pregnancies.

Munonde was invited to address the pupils on health aspects for youths, particularly teenagers, in a world where children are faced with challenges such as drug abuse, crime and teenage pregnancies. “We are so exposed to a wide range of challenges and problems which further affect us as a society,” she said. “One serious problem is the spread of the growing volume of child pregnancy cases.” She added that having a child when one was still a pupil affected the pupil’s well-being, because she might lose focus on her studies since she had to look after a new life. “I have noted with dismay cases where pupils were so proud of being teenage mothers. Some of them even boast about being mothers and say that it was good having a child or children while they were still children themselves.” Munonde said that she saw no fun in the issue of children who prided themselves on being mothers when they were still children who needed to enjoy childhood. “I have heard cases of teenagers who sneered at their peers that they were barren as they were neither pregnant nor had a child,” she said. She also added that pupils must not use their family’s poor background as an excuse for being involved in a sexual relationship in order to supplement childhood necessities such as food, clothes and money. “You are only a child,” she said. “You must bear in mind that you can’t handle school, childhood, life and motherhood at one and the same time.” The principal of Sinugani Secondary School, Mr Sonnyboy Masuka, said that Munonde’s words were life-affirming. “Her message was clear and we believe that our pupils had learned a thing or two from her words,” he said. “We can’t pretend that the issue of teenage pregnancies should be taken as a normal aspect of life. Our children need to focus on studying and only start with family planning once they finish school.”

Local police claim many successes By Isabel Venter It was a busy weekend for the Makhado police, who succeeded in nabbing a total of 31 suspects. Over the course of the weekend, a total of nine suspects were arrested in and around Louis Trichardt for drinking liquor in a public or open space. Another five suspects were caught driving under the influence of liquor, while three

Many graves are hardly visible at Mbaleni, some are sinking, while some could not be identified because of the dense bushes.

“Bridge is a trap for road users” area, Mr Gilbert Muofhe, said that the agency kept on making promises which they did not fulfil. He said that RAL had indicated that a technical team had visited the site and evaluated the damage in the middle of 2016, after which they promised that they would hire contractors who would start with the project as soon as possible. “We are experiencing heavy rains and the rains continue to cause more damage to what is actually left of the bridge,” said Muofhe. “We are the daily users of this road and, truly speaking, the collapsed bridge is making life difficult for us. Most particularly when it rains, we fear that our cars might slip into the gorge down the bridge.” The DA’s Cllr Seani Tshifularo said that they were deeply saddened by the way RAL was ignoring the erecting or fixing of the bridge. “That bridge has been left as a trap for road users for more than five years now,” he said. “The first contractor left their material on the side of the road near the collapsed bridge for more than three years now. We don't know whether that service provider was paid or not. If the service provider has been paid, then this needs to be investigated as to why the project was abandoned in the first place.” Lekalakala, however, said that RAL hoped finalise the apppointment of the contractor by the end of March, after which the project would start. Mr Gilbert Muofhe is seen here on the damaged bridge on the R522 road.

Waterval SAPS on look-out for rapist By Kaizer Nengovhela The Waterval SAPS are looking for information pertaining to a suspect who is alleged to have raped a 26-year-old woman at Bungeni in the early hours of Saturday. The man has short hair, is black in complexion, fluent in

Xitsonga, of medium height and slender build and uses a knife to threaten his victims. According to a police statement, the unknown man allegedly approached his victim when she left the Diza Bar Lodge. He then pulled the woman into a fence, where he ordered

her to undress and raped her repeatedly. After the ordeal, he threatened to kill her but later left and is still at large. He was last seen wearing a cream-coloured long-sleeve T-shirt with blue and brown stripes and a cream-white hat (spottie).

NYDA donates pads to girls By Prudence Bopape Representatives from the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA), all the way from their head office in Johannesburg, paid a special visit on Wednesday, 1 March, to Kutama-Midoroni village and donated sanitary towels to girls at two schools in the area. According to Ntibi Modise, the NYDA manager of Special Projects, Health and Well-being, NYDA is a youth-development agency that mainly focuses on females between the age of 14 and 35 years. The agency endeavours to assist

these young women in order to promote a healthy lifestyle. “Some girls go to the extent of using grass, toilet paper and even newspapers because they cannot afford sanitary towels, compromising their health and studies at the same time,” Modise added. Muofhe Nyelisani, the organiser of the event, said she saw a need as a community member to help these girls, because it was saddening to see a child missing school because she could not afford sanitary towels. “Our community is hardly recognized by most people and I feel that it is about time someone did something about the

Many of those who follow Tshivenda soul music will agree that the name Mariana Motlare is synonymous with this genre. Mariana’s sweet voice and acrobatic dancing style have earned her the title of undisputed queen by music lovers wherever she performs. Like wine that matures with time, Mariana’s latest seven-track album, Ni kha di mpfuna naa (Do you still love me?) bears testimony that her musical career is blossoming and she is mature enough to keep her fans satisfied always. Judging by the sales figures and massive airplay on community and national radio stations, there is no doubt that Ni kha di mpfuna naa is the best offering ever since Mariana turned profes-

sional in 2001. “I have worked hard to make sure that this album is mature, professional and entertaining. I took all the advice from my fans raised during my previous albums and incorporated them on this new album – hence it is making waves in the local music fraternity. The support from my fans is overwhelming and I’m very happy that music lovers are talking about it wherever I go.” Apart from the title track, the album contains the songs Thi funi zwitshele, Music is my life, Tshomi ya maduna, Mali, Rabelani and A hu na hune nda ya. A resident of Thohoyandou, Mariana’s journey to stardom started many years ago while she was still in primary school at Ha-Mutele village, near Masisi. “My voice would stand out both at Sunday school and in community gatherings. I would always find myself leading and everyone kept on

talking about the little girl with the sweet voice. My life changed for the better when I met Phillip Nephawe, better known as Mutendas, and he requested me to be his backing vocalist.” She said her previous albums were still doing well, despite her releasing the latest one. “U tambula ndi ha kale, which I released in 2001, is still in demand. It was followed by Ndi humbula zwa kale (2003), A si mutukana (2004), Musadzi ndi mbilu (2010) and Lufuno ndi lwa kale (2015). For bookings, public performance and CD sales, Mariana can be phoned on 082 049 2333.

"It's cool to write in indigenous languages" says Rudzani

By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho The culture of reading stories for pleasure and entertainment seems to be dwindling in many communities. Some people argue that books have become too expensive, while others say access to reading material has declined. However, a 25-year-old woman, Rudzani Thangambi, believes that a culture of reading is only gaining momentum in the country. The proof is the success of her literary initiative, where she writes stories and posts them on Facebook for readers to enjoy at no cost. She also published a book, Avhatakali, in hard copy in 2015. Although she mainly self-publishes, Rudzani makes use of experienced editors, proofreaders and quality printers. A resident of Ha-Makhuvha village, near Vuwani, Rudzani noticed her writing talent

at a young age. She would write poems and plays and pass them around to friends to read. “I was a very shy kid,” she said. “As a teenager I'd read anything from newspapers to novels and magazines. My dad used to encourage me to read, in that he'd buy me newspapers and magazines regularly." It is that love of books and reading which has so far served as a foundation for her writing tools: vocabulary, plot devising and story structuring. She writes both in Tshivenda and English, but it seems she is more at ease when writing in Tshivenda. “I am a proud Muvenda and I've proven that not only in my writing, but in supporting our Tshivenda music as well,” she said. “I love to read and after realising that most of the books that people are publishing today are in English, I saw a gap that needed to be filled. I felt that maybe I should take a stand to write in Tshivenda and then many more people would start doing the same.” In 2015 she published Avhatakali, and it was well received. “What was even more humbling was when I was approached by a number of young people who were interested in writing books in Tshivenda. There

are few that I am working with on a project that I can't disclose yet.” Her Facebook stories are riveting. She started her literary page after reading a favourite Facebook page, called Amacherrie Ase Kasi. “I began to hear my writing self talking to me,” she stated. “The plot of Amacherie Ase Kasi was intriguing and gripping. I loved how the writer told that story. So I decided to create a page too and started writing inserts which I posted daily on Facebook. That’s how Rudzani the writer was born.” The story that catapulted her to fame was Tshitori tsha vhutshilo hanga, which she published daily on an eponymous Facebook page. Her current Facebook page, The untold – I was his mistress, has around 40 000 likes. She delights in sharing stories with the readers, even though she does not get paid for her efforts. “I have learned that not everything is about money and making income,” said the environmental science graduate and mother of a fouryear-old daughter, Rokunda Munyai. “I get pretty excited when I see the kind of people reading my stories. I am talking about people old enough to be my mom, young teenage boys and girls who don’t usually read paperbacks. With my Facebook page, I have created a platform for people to exercise their reading skills, seeing that we have fewer people who want to read these days. So I don’t feel like it’s a waste for me to write because I have received massive feedback from different people whose lives I had touched through my stories. So I think that’s worth more than cash to me.”

Phalaphala FM closed the month of celebrations in style in partnership with Ikwekwezi FM and their Gauteng listeners at Morotele Park on Saturday. Mr Lufuno Munonde, events coordinator, said he felt humbled and grateful that “our listeners came out in numbers to support us. This drive was also an eye opener that we need to go out more and interact with our listeners. In this way, we shall be able to connect with them, understand their concerns and issues. This will position us to actually talk about real issues that our people are conversing about daily.” He said that the 2017 birthday celebrations differed from the others in that they planned all the activities from a zero budget. “The station depended on sponsors for most of the things we needed, ranging from accommodation to stage, sound and décor, to mention a few. This has been a demonstration that our stakeholder management is working for the stations.” He added that they had managed to get sponsors from Khosikhulu Vho-Toni Mphephu Ramabulana and businesspeople in Limpopo and Gauteng. The station also plans to visit, with the help of different

chiefs, various areas around Vhembe as a way of celebrating this 52nd milestone. The senior traditional leaders in each area will mobilize respective businesspeople to make this dream a reality, and with the support they have received previously, this should be an achievable objective, he said. It was quite exciting to hear listeners of Ikwekwezi FM and Phalaphala FM calling in last Friday morning, during the joint broadcast, expressing their appreciation for this initiative. “It may not have been instantly obvious, but the listeners were demonstrating their readiness to embrace what the two stations have ably and willingly embarked on, a drive to bring our people together.” He also mentioned the ease with which presenters of both stations interacted and described it as a demonstration of social cohesion which these two giants of the airwaves espouse to drive. “As Phalaphala FM, we are eternally grateful for the spirit of synergy displayed by Ikwekwezi FM for not only cooperation during this event, but the assistance we have been getting over the years during our outside broadcasts in Gauteng.”

Women told not to keep quiet By Elmon Tshikhudo As part of the commemoration of International Women's Day, the Litshani Vhana Vha De Foundation (LVVF) at Muledane, in

Dr Josephine Mudau makes a presentation during the dialogue at Litshani Vhana.

partnership with Women’s Hope Education and Training Trust (WHEAT) hosted its first dialogue and awareness programme on gender-based violence last Wednesday. The dialogue, which was held at the foundation's centre at Muledane, was attended mainly by women. Presenters during the dialogue included Dr Josephine Mudau from Univen and Dr Tshenuwani Farisani, well-known cleric and a board member of the Safer South Africa Foundation. The facilitation and panel members included officials from the office of the mayor in Vhembe, the South African Police and the Institute for Gender and Youth Studies at Univen. The managing director of LVVF, Ms Bridgette Mamugudubi, said that the dialogue came about as a result of the ever-increasing gender violence, with mostly women and children being the victims. “Through this dialogue, we are trying to promote community advocacy around gender-based vi-

olence in order to encourage all the stakeholders to discuss their concerns, exchange ideas and develop key messages that oppose violence against women and children and other vulnerable groups,” she said. In her presentation, Dr Josephine Mudau of the Institute for Gender and Youth Studies at Univen said women were the most vulnerable when it came to gender-based violence. She urged them not to keep quiet but to share their challenges with people close to them. Dr Farisani, a veteran of the liberation struggle, said campaigns without God would be in vain, while Vho-Roderick Tshivhi praised the Litshani Vhana Foundation for assisting the vulnerable in the village. “This is a very good initiative. Women play a pivotal part in the family, taking care of the whole family, but are despised, abused and attacked for no apparent reason.” He promised that the royal council would sit and see if they could give the foundation a bigger site where they could operate.

The Rivala Drop-In Centre has been caring for orphans and vulnerable children in their community for the past six years. This centre helps local children to do their school work and provides meals to the children in their care. The Giyani team of Hollywoodbets wanted to support this worthy cause by donating a much-needed fence and gate to the centre. "This donation helps us very much, because our organisation is very poor. We can't afford to make improvements to the centre because we aren't funded by the social department. We do the work that is needed by going around and asking for donations. Thank you, Hollywoodbets, for helping us to make our centre better," said Khensani Jeanet Chabalala, project manager at the centre. In our photograph are Mesdames Salvah Mathonsi and Yvonne Hlaisi.

“Businesspeople must understand social media”

The business sector has entered an age where competition has become so prevalent that poor marketing inevitably leads to stagnation or even a company’s closure. According to Mr Tiyiselani Bevhula, a resident of Mtititti Lombard in the Malamulele area, even those who have been in the business sector for decades also need to know and understand that the social media have become an inevitable avenue to reach prospective clients. He founded Bevhula Media with the hope of taking advantage of social media as a modern tool to advertise people’s products and services.

I would like more generations to know about our times, although I believe that I will still live for many years to come.” “If you live a clean life, God will bless you and you will live long,” she said. The youngsters must also respect their elders and preserve their culture. “Eat healthy food and distance yourself from alcohol,” she said. Maemu told Limpopo Mirror that she had never gone to school. “During our days, there was no schooling and our parents also did not even go to school,” she added.

Ramabulana, Mr Jackson Mafunzwaini, said that the king had recently met with the MEC for Cooperative Governance, Human Settlement and Traditional Affairs, Makoma Makurupetje, to discuss the matter. It was agreed that the territorial councils of Masia, Ha-Rambuda, Mphaphuli, Masakona and Ha-Mutsha would benefit from the deal. According to Mafunzwaini, the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure will be responsible for construction of the buildings. “King Mphephu was touched by the state of some traditional council buildings. Some of the buildings were old and dilapidated, some roofing was falling apart as they were built in the 1960s. We hope the life of our communities will change for the better as soon as the centres start to function,” said Mafunzwaini. Mafunzwaini further said that the construction of the five traditional council buildings was scheduled to start early in April. One of the senior traditional leaders who is set to benefit, Thovhele Ratshibvumo II Rambuda, Gogo Mudalahohe Maemu, surrounded by some of her children and grandchildren during her said he was thankful for the deal. birthday celebrations.

This is what we call community empowerment.” He advised community members to take good care of the infrastructure after completion. “The fact that the infrastructure is located in the municipal offices does not necessarily mean that it belongs solely to the municipality. Damaging infrastructure creates setbacks as more money will be diverted from service delivery to the repairs and maintenance. We all have the responsibility to make sure that these buildings are safe at all times.”

Water shortages a thing of the past? By Silas Nduvheni Water shortages will hopefully be a thing of the past for the communities of Folovhodwe, Muswodi, Tshiungani and Masisi in the near future, thanks to the Luphephe Nwanedi Bulk Water Supply from Folovhodwe to Masisi. The media liaison officer of the Vhembe District Municipality, Mr Moss Shibambu, told Limpopo Mirror that the construction of the R160 million project, which began in October last year, will solve the problem of a scarcity of water in the affected areas.

According to Shibambu, contractors have been working around the clock since December last year. “We are ready to change the life of our communities for the better and as we are the water services authority, we will not rest until our communities get better services.” He added that they were also liaising with the traditional leaders, councillors and community liaison officers of the affected areas, so that the water projects can be completed as soon as possible. A community liaison officer for Luphephe Nwanedi Bulk Water Supply, Mr Joseph Manenzhe, said that, during

the construction phase, more than 20 previously unemployed people were now working, and thecommunities of Folovhodwe, Muswodi, and Tshiungani were among those people benefiting. He appealed to the communities, however, to stop vandalizing the material at the site. “Stealing will move the construction of the project off its tracks,” he added. According to Manenzhe, he was previously unemployed and was looking for a job, without any luck, but now things have changed for better because he can put food on the table for his family.

Collecting rain water By Isabel Venter National Water Week is an awareness-week campaign launched by the Department of Water and Sanitation, which serves as a powerful campaign to reiterate the value of water, the need for sustainable management of this scarce resource and the role water plays in eradicating poverty and underdevelopment in South Africa. The campaign seeks to continue building on the ongoing awareness creation within the broader South African community. This awareness creation is coupled with the responsibility that every citizen must take in ensuring the integrity of our water resources and their efficient use. As custodians of this awareness week, the Department of Water Affairs encourages all South Africans to focus on the

need to restore and preserve the integrity of this most precious resource, water. South Africans must take responsibility to make sure this scarce resource is managed in an effective and sustainable manner. In South Africa, National Water Week is celebrated from 16 to 22 March. Locally residents have been crippled by a lack of proper water service delivery, despite a higher-than-normal rainfall experienced at the beginning of 2017. According to the latest figures of the Department of Water and Sanitation, the Vhembe District’s ground and dam levels have been sufficiently replenished. Protecting and saving water is, however, still everyone’s business and one such a way is to collect and store rainwater. Collecting rainwater is an easy and inexpensive way for consumers to save water to be used later for gardening, landscap-

ing and cleaning at home. In Louis Trichardt, rain barrels can easily be substituted with regular water tanks that are easy to come by. Some companies sell tanks that are specifically designed to capture and store rainwater. For most houses, the water that falls on the roof inevitably finds its way into the downpipes. So, rather take advantage of this free water supply from the sky by simply connecting a rainwater-harvesting tank to a downpipe. While you do this, keeping your rainwater container dark and covered is important. Keeping it dark makes sure that algae or other light-feeding organisms do not bloom in your water and keeping it covered keeps the bugs out (especially mosquitoes, who love standing water.) Stored rain water should not be used for drinking, unless it has been treated to get rid of any bacteria.

warela Stadium on Sunday. It was a one-sided affair from the first whistle, with the Brazilians from Mavhola village at the receiving end. Realizing that there was nothing to fear, Rockers started to demonstrate their dribbling skills in the opening minutes in a bid to frustrate the visitors. A scramble within the Brazilians' danger area gave rise to the opening goal for Rockers in the 14th minute. Phindulo Mudau hooked in the ball to give his side a well-deserved lead. As if they were leading, the Brazilians abandoned their positions and packed themselves at the far back. That gave the home side a good chance to dictate terms in the middle of the park. Rockers extended their lead in the 29th minute. Their overlapping defender, Tshifhiwa Ramaphosa, forced his way through the defence of Brazilians and unleashed a ground cutter from close range. The keeper of Brazilians, Adivhaho Makhesha, watched helplessly as the ball went beyond his reach. The referee, Mr Roy Mulaudzi, flashed the first yellow card in the 39th minute. Unarine Kudzingana of Rockers was warned for ignoring the referee’s whistle. He kicked the ball away long after the whistle was blown. Rockers used all their substitu-

tion chances in the last half. They replaced Andani Ndou, Phindulo Mudau and Unarine Kudzingana with Tshimangadzo Matamela, Rotondwa Kutama and Ofhani Mudau respectively. Abel Tshivhonammbi of Brazilians was booked for dangerous play in the 64th minute. Murhangeri Khosa scored the Rockers’ third goal 10 minutes before the final whistle.

News with an independent soul

Molemole snatched two late goals within the last 10 minutes of the game, thanks to George Malebana and Thomas Lekganyane’s goals. Joe Maweja moved a step up on the log, following their 3-1 victory over Lephalale Young Killers at the Tshifudi Stadium. Thanzi Muruge, Moses Mathonsi and Lufuno Tshidade scored for Maweja, while Sipho Twala scored the Killers’ solitary goal. Madridtas shared the spoils with Mokopane Ratanang, following their goalless draw at the Mahwelereng Stadium. The other game that ended in a goalless draw was between Polokwane Academy and Gawula Classic at the Polokwane Rugby Fields.

Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) have reason to rejoice. They managed to collect maximum points in theirbleague match against A1 Terrors last weekend, even though it was an away fixture for them. Terrors did not respond when TTM scored three goals at the Ephraim Mogale Stadium in Modimolle on Sunday. Rendani “Vorosi” Dzivhani was a marvel to watch in the game. He scored a brace. He scored his team’s opening goal in the 18th minute. Lufuno “CJ” Mugodi made his presence felt when he blasted in a rocket towards the end of the first half. Dzivhanis scored his second goal later in the game to ensure that his side take full points to Tshakhuma. TTM are still in the third position on the log, despite collecting maximum points. Molemole Academy were too strong for Giyani Hotspurs and beat them 4-2 at the Nirvana Stadium. Their first two goals came via Daniel Nkoana and Lawrence Seopela in the 12th and 19th minute respectively. Hotspurs did not lose hope, despite conceding the two early goals. They fought hard towards the end of the first half. Their efforts were rewarded and Joseph Mthombeni and Velly Honwane scored in the 34th and 44th minute respectively to bring TTM’s second goal scorer, Lufuno “CJ” Mugodi. the half-time score to 2-2.

Narrow victory for Defenders By Kaizer Nengovhela

Mpheni Home Defenders beat Madombidzha Western Stars1-0 in their MMK Administrators League match at Mpheni on Saturday. Defenders approached the game aggressively, with their strikers regularly invading the danger zone of Stars. Oscar Leaka of Stars was the first player to go into the referee’s book. He tackled Thabo Matuba from behind just outside the penalty box. The only time when Stars came close to scoring was when Thabelo Tharini went loose from the left flank and shot wide from close range. At that stage, the game was 34 minutes old. In an effort to strengthen their striking force, Defenders introduced Shorene Nndwambi for Trust Tshidumo. The only goal of the match came in the 38th minute. Thabo Matuba finished off a square ball from Emanuel Mphephu. In the 76th minute, a shot by Ndaedzo Mareda of Defenders missed the goal post by inches. Late in the game, Stars should have equalised, but Oscar Leaka’s ground cutter hit the woodwork and bounced back into play, much Tshilidzi Srivho of Defenders and Doctor Ratto the disappointment of the team’s fans. shibaya head the ball away.

“King” on trial with Chiefs By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho A young star in local soccer circles, Tshifhiwa “King Mayor” Maligudu, is an excited young man after Mamu Community Development secured him an opportunity to undergo a screening for eligibility to join Kaizer Chiefs' development team. The 14-year-old Grade 9 pupil at Maneledzi Secondary School will spend at least two weeks with Kaizer Chiefs' trials section in Gauteng. “I had no proper words to express my excitement when I received the good news,” he said. “I will do my best to make sure that I qualify to be part of

the Kaizer Chiefs development team.” Maligudu developed his soccer skills when he was playing under Mabaleng Development and then joined Tshiozwi Dynamos (reserve). He drew the attention of Mamu Community Development's management, who then exposed his talent to soccer legend Jerry Sikhosana. “Sikhosana played a big role in making sure that the young boy's talent got the kind of attention it so deserved in the Kaizer Chiefs development agency,” said the general secretary of Mamu Community Development, Mr Jafter Mamugudubi. “So, it is up to this young man to ensure his

admission in the development team's school. We wish him all the best.” Maligudu's guardian, Ms Humbulani Maligudu, said that they were proud of him and prayed that he would get good results. “We can't wait to receive good news in two weeks' time.” The young player’s story is not the first good story from the house of Mamu Community Development. The organisation sent young soccer player Andries Masingi (19) last week to join the Thuso Phala Foundation, where his soccer talent will be nurtured. Maligudu’s trip is sponsored by KFC and Hollywoodbets.

Mukula Young Santos surrender to Phandulaluvalo FC By Frank Mavhungu

The home side did not lose hope after conceding the goal. Instead, they continued to play entertaining football in their search for the equalizer. The visitors from Tshifudi increased the margin in the 36th minute. Edward Mabasa was on target with a half volley. He beat the keeper to bring the half-time score to 2-0. Santos fought the second half with their hands tied behind their backs. Their defender, Shandukani Mahandana, was given his marching orders in the 47th minute.

Phandulaluvalo FC enhanced their chances of winning the league title when they beat Mukula Young Santos 2-0 in their MMK Administrators match at the Tshidzani Tsha Maria grounds on Saturday. Santos were by far the better side when it came to ball possession and dribbling skills. Realizing that it would be difficult for them to match the home side pound for pound in all departments, Phandulaluvalo played aerials balls from behind. Although Santos lost shape in the middle of the park many a time, their left-footed midfielder, Humphrey Takalani, remained a live wire. He was everywhere, dishing some telling passes to the goal poachers, who seemed to have forgotten their scoring boots at home. Santos, however, threatened to score in the 14th minute. Joshua Netshilindi received a neat pass from Humphrey Takalani just outside the box but shot straight to the stranded keeper of Phandulaluvalo, Maanda Magaba, who easily handled the ball. Phandulaluvalo’s opening goal came in the 34th minute. Their captain, Engedzedsani Mudau, blasted in a rocket from inside the Edward Mabasa of Phandulaluvalo (left) and Joshua Netshilindi of Santos wrestle to win the ball. box.

Leopards need victory against All Stars By Frank Mavhungu After a break of two weeks, it will be business as usual for the National First Division League teams this weekend. Black Leopards are leaving no stone unturned in their preparations for their all-important match against Cape Town All Stars. They will meet at the Thohoyandou Stadium tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon. While a victory for Black Leopards will enhance their chances of brining the league title to Thohoyandou at the end of the season, it is a matter of life and death for the team from the Mother City. They are are perched in the sixth spot from the bottom of the log and not safe when it comes to relegation. They have deposited 24 points into their account to date, nine more than the tail-enders, Santos FC. Should they fail to collect the maximum points tomorrow, Leopards are likely to drop from the second to the fifth spot on the log, depending on the results for the other league title contenders, Royal Eagles, Stellenbosch FC and Jomo Cosmos. Leopards will pin their hopes on Mwape Musonda, Ivan Mahangwahaya, Leonard Ntshangase and Mziwokuthula Zimu for goals, while Lebohang Mabotja, Marks Munyai and Thivhavhudzi Ndou will keep their danger area clean. The University of Pretoria will host Mbombela United at the Tuks Stadium in Pretoria. The Amatuks are one of the league title contenders, while Mbombela are out of the race. The pace setters, Thanda Royal Zulu, will fly to Cape Town to honour their fixture against Milano United at the Athlone Stadium, and Royal Eagles will entertain FC Cape Town at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg. Mthatha Bucks and Real Kings will meet at the Mthatha Stadium and Santos will host Magezi FC at the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town on Sunday. Sparks are expected to fly when Jomo Cosmos host Stellenbosch FC at the Tsakane Stadium in Johannesburg. Amazulu and Witbank Spurs will meet at the Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban.
